|Police probe missing funds
Lenoir City Police Department is investigating missing cafeteria funds from Lenoir City Intermediate/Middle School.
Lenoir City Schools turned over information regarding missing funds to the LCPD earlier this month, Jeanne Barker, superintendent, said.
“We had concerns regarding some missing funds,” Barker said. “... The police department is handling that, and the last they told me, they were turning it over to the (district attorney’s) office. So that means the investigation is ongoing.”
LCPD Sgt. Lynette Ladd is leading the investigation, but no additional information could be released because it is ongoing.
Linda Robinson, who was manager of the LCIMS cafeteria during the time the funds went missing, announced her retirement from the position Feb. 22 in a one sentence, handwritten letter.
Robinson did not return a request for comment.
