ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky city is missing $144,000 worth of tires from its garage, and officials are offering a reward for information in the case.

The Independent (https://bit.ly/1B5WTLz) reports Ashland City Commissioner Larry Brown suggested offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

City officials announced an investigation in December after noting that tire expenditures increased from $81,210 in 2103 to $246,255.50 last year. City manager Ben Bitter said only $102,000 of the expenditures could be accounted for and auditors noted the irregularities in their final report last month on city finances.

Bitter said police, city officials and the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General were collaborating in the investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to call Silent Witness at (606) 329-1771.
