Columbus Co. sheriff asks SBI to find money missing from evidence


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Columbus County Sheriff Lewis Hatcher says he has asked the State Bureau of Investigation to help him find some missing evidence.

Hatcher says a few weeks ago money came up missing from the evidence storage unit, and that prompted the call to SBI. He would not say how much money was missing, but he says it was a fairly small amount.
