JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A new report from the state auditor says Mississippi's Bureau of Narcotics director was improperly paid $27,662 for working extra hours and recommends he repay that money to the state.
The money was for the state buying compensatory time hours from Director John Dowdy, and the auditor's report says proper permission was not given.
The auditor's report was released Thursday.
It also says Dowdy improperly used $2,450 in a clothing allowance and recommends he repay that money.
