The Charleston Post and Courier has reported an excess of spending records from Chester County Sheriff Alex Underwood.

The report says that in 2017 Underwood and Chief Deputy Robert Sprouse spent over 5-thousand dollars on first class plane tickets to fly to the National Sheriff’s Association in Reno, Nevada and instead of taking two ranking deputies they brought their wives.

After the trip was over the total dollar amount was over 11-thousand dollars.  Both Underwood and Sprouse say they paid for their wive’s flights out of pocket, but records show that they wrote checks for over 1-thousand dollars to the department’s working account 2 years after the trip, but one day after the Post and Courier submitted written questions about the expenses.
