OAKLAND — State Auditor Stacey Pickering has recovered an additional $48,933.35 as part of the long-term investigation into the failed beef processors plant in Yalobusha County, and has presented the check to State Treasurer Lynn Fitch.
Since 2004, $617,115.86 has been returned to the state as part of this investigation. Additionally, six individuals have either pled guilty or been convicted for their role in the beef processors plant located in Oakland.
“This investigation is nearly 10 years old now but we are continuing to pursue this case as long as we have a chance of recovering funds belonging to the taxpayers of Mississippi,” Pickering said.
