Macon police say they've completed an inventory of the department's crime lab and found that no evidence is missing.

An earlier review of the Macon Police Department's evidence room found there was no way to tell who had been in the room or if anyone had changed the evidence record.

The city's internal auditor, Stephanie Jones, had found that evidence logs and incident reports weren't being completed and that cash received wasn't always verified with the officer who brought it in.
