Scott County clerk's office employee charged with theft

Kentucky State Police have arrested a Scott County clerk's office employee after investigating a complaint this month about missing funds.

Lori A. Cain of Cynthiana is charged with theft by deception of more than $500, state police said.

State police received a complaint earlier this month that funds were missing from the clerk's office.

Police say Cain committed the offense, a Class D felony, while employed there.

County Clerk Jackie Covington would not discuss anything related to the case, including what Cain did in the clerk's office or her current employment status.

"I can't comment on any of this," Covington said. "This investigation is ongoing."
