MULLINS, S.C. (WMBF) - The Marion County Animal Shelter’s director is under investigation for allegations of embezzlement, according to a spokesperson with the State Law Enforcement Division.

SLED confirmed with WMBF News that there is an active investigation into Angel Rogers, the director of the shelter after the Marion County Sheriff’s Office requested the agency’s assistance.

According to SLED, the investigation began in the summer and remains active at this time.

Marion County County Administrator Tim Harper confirmed the investigation had been going on since July, saying that they thought it was best that they have an outside agency investigate after a complaint came in from the public.

Harper told WMBF News that Rogers is still working at the shelter. He said it’s their understanding that SLED’s report from the investigation has been submitted to the solicitor’s office.

WMBF News is waiting to hear back for comment from the animal shelter.
