An audit reveals nearly $80,000 in missing money from an eastern Iowa municipal light plant.

The report says plant superintendent William Edgerly used the money to buy personal items ranging from gas and pet medicine to concert tickets and items at Victoria’s Secret.

Edgerly resigned from the Coggon plant, but in the middle of the audit the board of trustees re-hired him and upped his salary by 23-percent.

The report by the Iowa Auditor’s Office has been sent to the Linn County Attorney’s Office.
