Papers show Greenwood sheriff's office spending

Posted: Updated:
August 15th, 2013 -

 Documents provided by the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office show the agency spent money on restaurants, Victoria's Secret and a trip to Disney World.

The Index-Journal of Greenwood reports  it reviewed nearly 750 pages of documents provided by the sheriff's office following a Freedom of Information Act request.

The sheriff's office finances are being investigated by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. SLED asked county interim attorney Stephen Baggett Jr. not to release the documents, but Baggett complied with the FOIA request and released all information not exempted.

Sheriff Tony Davis declined to talk about specific purchases, how they were funded and details of his office's finances. He released a statement Tuesday saying he asked for SLED on Feb. 4 to investigate. Six months later, no charges have been filed.
