FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- FOX25 Investigates has obtained an internal memo that shows money is missing from an evidence room in Framingham and we've learned a 30-year veteran of the force is under investigation.

The memo, sent out by Framingham Police Chief Ken Ferguson, went to the entire department Monday.

It said in part: "As you may know, the Massachusetts Attorney General's office is investigating the theft of money from the Police Department's Evidence Room."

Ferguson also said that some officers had been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury. Sources say the investigation started after police were told to check on him after an argument with his wife. Now those officers are part of the investigation.

The officer in question is a 30 year veteran of the department and was in charge of the evidence and detail bureau.

A source told FOX25 that upwards of $15,000 is missing.

“At this point in time I can’t confirm and I won’t deny that there is an investigation. You are aware of an internal email that I just had the opportunity to look at earlier today,” said Framingham Town Manager Robert Halpin.
