AUBURN, Ind. (AP) - A northeastern Indiana police chief says his department’s disciplinary committee has recommended action against two officers in connection with cash and weapons missing from its property room.

Auburn Police Chief Martin McCoy didn’t reveal the names of the officers. He told The (Auburn) Star (https://bit.ly/1PtBUWK ) Friday that he’ll present the recommendations for punishing them to the city’s Board of Public Works and Safety on Aug. 27.

McCoy announced earlier this month that a January audit showed $2,000 in cash was missing, plus four knives, eight bullets and a 12-gauge shotgun. The audit was ordered after someone woman came to claim $1,400 from a resolved case but it could not be located.

McCoy says Indiana State Police and Allen County Sheriff’s Department investigations didn’t turn up enough evidence for criminal charges.
