Johnson County Missing Police Records, Files

Johnson County Sheriff Dwayne Price said Wednesday that when he took office on Jan. 1, there were a lot of missing records — accident reports, investigative files, even personnel documents. "Bottom line, they were gone when we got here," Price said. "Totally wiped out." That has raised questions about whether former Sheriff Bill Witten might know where the records are. Witten's attorney, Stephen "Nick" Frazier, said the former sheriff didn't take the records. Tampering with public records is a felony.
