Auditor Releases Report on Surplus Property

A county auditor has just released a report on surplus items that were missing from the Smith County Sheriff's Department. The surplus property is worth millions of dollars. The federal government had given those items to the Sheriff's Department in exchange for housing federal prisoners.

The county auditor has recommended that the Sheriff's Department begin looking for several missing items, including two boats, a trailer, lights used in surgery, and a beverage dispenser. County commissioners say they'll likely present the auditor's report at the Commissioner's Court meeting on Monday.
