The investigation into possibly missing or misspent money at Eau Claire County’s Department of Human Services is now in the hands of the sheriff.
Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer yesterday said he will open a forensic audit into DHS. The sheriff says two people who work in the department are refusing to cooperate with the investigation, so he has no choice. Cramer said there could be some subpoenas coming. The audit comes after a DHS employee was charged with theft, and after the department has been millions of dollars over-budget for years.
