Three criminal investigations into Hardy County officials – into Hardy County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Tommie McCausley and Hardy County Prosecutor Lucas See – have, to date, cost the taxpayers at least $154,000, according to figures obtained from the County Clerk, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request last week.

Those figures show that, from Jan, 1, 2021 until May 14, 2022, when he returned to active duty, Deputy Tommie McCausley’s leave cost $86,627.63, a figure that includes $57,060.34 in wages, $11, 576.29 in Employer Taxes and Contributions, and $17,969.00 in insurance premiums.
