PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - An extensive inventory of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has located 4,000 items with only 14 unaccounted for.

The list of the 14 item was turned over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation in case they turn up in the future at a pawn shop.

County Administrator Brian Fulton said he believes most were “obsolete junk” from years ago. The biggest item among the unaccounted for was an ATV, but he said they found it had been reported stolen a number of years ago.

Fulton said the county now has a complete inventory of the sheriff’s department property.

“We have all the information in the database, in the system now,” Fulton told The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1sLFTGV ). “It’s been reconciled, every car, every gun, every Taser, everything you could imagine.”

The county is required by law to keep an inventory of items over a certain value, which includes office equipment, he said. The inventory cleared up duplicates and cleaned up the database.

The inventory began soon after former Sheriff Mike Byrd resigned and Charles Britt took over in January.

Among items found were 25 all-terrain vehicles. Britt has changed the practice of allowing the ATVs to be taken home by employees.
