Bay St. Louis must pay back nearly $300K to DOJ

After a nearly 16-month investigation, the City of Bay St. Louis learned Tuesday night that it will have to pay around $300,000 back to the U.S. Department of Justice for misspending drug forfeiture money.

The city council voted 6-0 to accept the findings in the DOJ report, and that $299,968.54 must be paid back to the federal agency. The investigation began in 2015 after auditors looked into the city’s drug forfeiture fund and found the shortage.
