The inventory is complete and the news is appalling. Seventy firearms — 45 more than originally reported last week — are missing from the evidence locker at the Washington County Sheriff’s Department.
But that’s not the scary part. Notice that the date on that article is April 24th, 2007, right?
The Attorney General’s Office has been notified and an investigator is expected to be in Machias the first week in May.
I guess the Attorney General doesn’t think it’s a serious issue.
edit: Another news story on the issue. Not sure why they’re calling a county sheriff’s office, the Maine Sheriff though. Sounds like Maine only has a single sheriff’s department.
