CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities are investigating money missing from Kanawha County Magistrate Court.

Kanawha County Sheriff’s spokesman Mike Rutherford tells the Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1QbELBM) that a court official informed deputies about the missing money on Wednesday.

Magistrate court employees deposit money daily collected from fines, among other court costs.

Rutherford says the money was supposed to have deposited at the end of the day and it wasn’t. He says when another individual went to look for it the next day, it wasn’t there.

Rutherford says it’s unknown what happened to the money. He declined to say how much is missing.

Deputies are interviewing employees and magistrates who work in the office.
