$64,692 in Hinds County property missing

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A truck, a 40-caliber Sig Sauer handgun, a refrigerator, computer equipment, several chain saws, five calculators and 18 pagers.

All are among nearly $65,000 worth of Hinds County government property reported lost or stolen during the last two years. That's according to inventories completed by the county last month.

Board of Supervisors President Robert Graham tells The Clarion-Ledger that the amount is significant even though the county claims more than 12,000 items valued at nearly $185 million in its 2009 inventory.

Supervisors say they don't suspect county employees.
