Tunica businesses hit in
back to back break-ins
A pair of break-ins in downtown Tunica last weekend are under investigation. Tunica Police Chief Richard Veazey said the drive-through window at Tunica Pharmacy was the entry for a break-in late Friday night or Saturday morning. Veazey said that electronics were reported missing from the store and that police collected evidence related to the break-in on First Baptist Church property, about two blocks away.
Admin. working to fix past audit issues
Tunica County Administrator Michael Thompson is taking information from past audit reports, the county’s financial accounting system, financial statements, and other records to create what he said will be a better government for the county.
“I’m about two things: transparency and accountability. It’s county government. It’s public,” Thompson said.
Material weaknesses have plagued Tunica County financial statements for at least the past several years, according to its 2009-2012 audit reports completed by Hernando-based accountancy firm Williams, Pitts, and Beard, PLLC. Reports are publicly available online at the Office of State Auditor Stacey Pickering.
