ROME, GA (WXIA) -- Police are investigating thousands of dollars in misused money discovered by the Floyd County Board of Education.
Spokesman Tim Hensley says employees were performing a review of their purchasing system as they prepared to switch to a new one when they found "questionable purchasing practices."
At that point, Hensley says they contacted the Floyd County Police Department and the District Attorney's Office.
"We just know that it's not a small amount. It's gonna be in the thousands that we're talking about," said Hensley.
Police say computers, electronics, and a mini refrigerator were some of the items purchased with money meant to go toward the education of Floyd County students.
