A special prosecutor has been appointed to the investigation of missing drugs and cash from the Greenbrier County Sheriff's Department.
The Prosecuting Attorneys Institute has named Raleigh County Prosecutor Kristin Keller as Special Prosecutor for the case. State Police are currently investigating.
Greenbrier County Prosecutor Patrick Via asked to be removed from the case, citing that the investigation's target is a former deputy sheriff who has a pending caseload.
Both State Police and Sheriff James Childers say the evidence room isn't involved in the investigation.
