Local law enforcement is investigating the alleged theft of Cullman County Fair Association funds.
Attorney Heath Meherg released a statement on behalf of the association Friday evening.
The release states that one week ago, the association "discovered that an individual had misappropriated a substantial amount of funds belonging to the association." The association reported the incident and is working with local law enforcement in its investigation.
"At this time, the association will not comment on the amount of funds or the identity of the suspect" the statement continues.
No further details will be released until the investigation is complete, according to the statement.
