CALHOUN FALLS, S.C. (AP) - Officials in Calhoun Falls say they asked the State Law Enforcement Division of missing funds after the husband of a former employee turned in about $18,000 in cash, checks, money orders and credit card payments.

Mayor Johnny Waller and Town Administrator Paul Gilbert said they made the SLED request after the bag of money was dropped off at town hall.

The financial problems were first reported by The Index-Journal of Greenwood.

Waller and Gilbert had said previously the town’s investigation of missing money had not needed an outside review. The men said that changed after the money was dropped off.

There also were tickets, receipts and court fine reports in the bag.

Waller said the town had been looking for more tickets and had been told there were none.
