CALHOUN COUNTY — A chancery clerk in Calhoun County has resigned.
A news release yesterday from Mississippi State Auditor Stacey Pickering says clerk Jess Moore’s resignation followed a visit by agents from Pickering’s office.
Agents conducted a cash count of the Land Redemption account following an allegation of missing funds, the Clarion-Ledger reported.
Pickeing’s news release said the agents concluded an undetermined amount of money was unaccounted for and that Moore repaid about $12,000 that had not been properly deposited into the account.
