Asheville Police Department http://wunc.org en The Asheville Evidence Room, an Update http://wunc.org/post/asheville-evidence-room-update <p>More than a year ago, evidence started to go missing from the Asheville Police Department. The city council commissioned an audit of the evidence room to investigate the extent of the lost items. Though the audit was completed months ago, the District Attorney's office refuses to release it. Now five news organizations in Western North Carolina have banded together to sue the city of Asheville and the Buncombe County district attorney's office for the release of the audit.
