The Yates County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the misappropriation of funds belonging to the county’s Chamber of Commerce.
That investigation started in November when the Chamber’s Board of Directors notified law enforcement of the missing funds. In an email Monday, Sheriff Ron Spike wrote “their getting closer, but financial records can be challenging and we are moving methodically and thoroughly.”
Any amount in excess of 1-THOUSAND dollars missing would result in a felony charge.
The investigation continues with unnamed persons of interest at this time.
