GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Greene County Sheriff's Department has several thousands of dollars of restitution pending in their checking account.

The department is seeking people who were awarded funds.

According to Circuit Secretary Tammy Case, they know who the people are, but those people have changed their addresses, making it hard to get money to them.

Case said anyone who was awarded restitution in the past 8 years can get that money from the department.

"We can verify that they are who they say they are, that yes indeed they were awarded restitution, then from there we can release that money to them," Case said.

If you are owed restitution money in Greene County, contact the sheriff's department at 870-236-7612.
