Madison County Sheriff's deputies are trying to determine who stole hundreds of dollars right out of the Chancery Court clerk's office.

Investigators said on May 29, the Chancery Court clerk reported $500 missing from an unlocked safe in her office. The theft however occurred five days earlier.

According to the sheriff, the theft was reported to the comptroller's office when it happened, but a report was not filed with the sheriff's department at that time.
