PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Controller Michael Lamb hasn’t been able to trace what happened to 380 missing city parking meters, but suggests they may have been scrapped by a Pittsburgh Parking Authority supervisor in a transaction that was never recorded.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1riSnyw) says the authority hasn’t documented what happened to 10 percent of the 3,800 meters that have been replaced by electronic pay stations in recent years. An audit by Lamb’s office couldn’t find records, either, though an email from an unnamed assistant authority director suggests he sold them for scrap at the behest of higher ups. It’s not clear how much money that netted.

The Allegheny County district attorney’s office was asked to review Lamb’s findings and says only that it was unable to pursue a criminal investigation.
