NASHVILLE –Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents assisted the State Comptroller’s Office in an investigation that alleged former Marshall County Deputy Larry G. Hardin, 59, stole tires from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
On Jan. 21, and at the request of the District Attorney General Robert Carter, TBI agents began to assist the State Comptroller’s Office in the investigation.
