SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

An investigation is underway into money missing from the municipal court in Scottsboro.

City leaders are being very quiet about any details except to say the Alabama Bureau of Investigation is looking into the situation.

Mayor Melton Potter declined to give any details about the situation except to say ABI is investigating.

Members of the city council are aware of the situation.

Council president Matthew Hodges confirmed it was about a week ago when he received a call from the mayor about the ABI investigation involving misappropriation of funds by the municipal court.

Hodges also declined to give specifics about the allegations, but he said the mayor did call other members of the council to inform them of the investigation.

Court officials would not comment.

Spokesman Curtis Summerville with the Alabama Department of Public Safety said they can only confirm that they are conducting an investigation into the Scottsboro Municipal Court System.
