Quincy police are investigating the apparent theft of a large amount of cash from the Quincy Patriot Ledger.
According to Quincy Police, an employee initially noticed that transactions in the circulation department were amiss. An audit found that a substantial amount of money was missing, police said.
Police declined to say the exact amount, though noted that it was substantial.
Quincy Police Captain John Dougan said the police were actively investigating the incident, and were making good progress.
“We do have a person of interest,” he said. “We expect a resolution in the near future.”
The missing money was reported to police by Gatehouse Media, the Patriot Ledger’s parent company, on March 29.
Several editors and the publisher of the Ledger could not be reached for comment.
Spokesmen for Gatehouse Media, Inc. also did not return repeated calls for comment.
No arrests have been made, Quincy Police said.
