The Oklahoma County (Okla.) Sheriff's Office failed to keep track of its vehicles and other assets, according to a report from the Oklahoma State Auditor & Inspector. Of the agency's 7,844 assets listed, 3,041 could not be located or reviewed, worth about $3.4 million. This includes 23 vehicles, 31 computers, 23 firearms, and software license documentation.

In the report, the auditor's office said it failed to locate 18 fleet vehicles, including seven trucks and 11 patrol vehicles, and concluded that these vehicles may have been disposed of without the proper approval. The report also noted that five vehicles were listed in the county clerk's list of vehicles but the agency had no record of them.
