Possible Embezzlement in Hall County

A Hall County employee is on administrative leave after being accused of embezzlement.

No charges have been filed, but the Texas Rangers are investigating.

Saturday afternoon the Rangers confiscated budgets and records from the Hall County Justice of the Peace office for a state audit.

Judge Thomas Tippett says he's surprised by the allegations and knew nothing about the alleged embezzlement.

It's unknown how much money was taken.

A charge will likely come in the next few weeks.
