Probe reveals LPD worker theft

Lebanon —  A civilian employee of the Lebanon Police Department has resigned after an FBI investigation found the employee was taking money from the department.

A routine annual audit by the State Board of Accounts in June found a discrepancy in the finances, said Lebanon Police Chief Sam Myers. The board randomly decided to audit one of the only revenue sources at the LPD — gun permits.

The board found a significant amount of money missing, Myers said.

“I was in on looking into where it went,” he said. “We were all trying to figure it out. It seemed strange. We couldn’t come up with any answers.”
