A special prosecutor yesterday
cleared Allen Taylor and Terry Alley of
any wrong doing.

The investigation dealt with
missing military surplus equipment at
the sheriff's office.

The equipment was stored at
Taylor's home, even though he'd been
out of office for nearly two years.

Special prosecutor Jerry Wolfe
says while all of these actions were
very unprofessional, unethical and
unwise, there is insufficient evidence
to prove that the actions of either one
of the individuals being investigated
were done with criminal intent.
