Schuyler County, Mo., collector resigns amid audit

August 24th, 2011 in News

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - The Schuyler County collector has resigned after an audit found that more than $50,000 was misappropriated.

Kirksville television station KTVO reports (http://bit.ly/nDgqWN ) that Collector Kathy Roberts resigned Monday.

Prosecutor Scott Summers told the station that Roberts allegedly misappropriated more than $50,000, but no charges have been filed. The money issues were discovered during an audit by the state auditor's office.

A news release from Summers says that "appropriate action will be taken to recover as much of the loss as possible."

Roberts was first elected to office in 1986.

No one answered the phone Tuesday morning at a number listed for Roberts.
