BATON ROUGE - A report by the legislative auditor finds Baton Rouge Community College misappropriated computer equipment and firearms.

In letters to Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera, former interim Chancellor Jim Horton wrote that the college "recognizes its responsibility" for the lapses and stated that administrators have taken corrective actions.

BRCC spokesman Steve Mitchell told The Advocate Monday the college would rely on Horton's written responses.

The audit found that BRCC officials delivered 27 pieces of computer equipment, including 10 laptops, valued at $15,447 to Computers for Louisiana Kids, a not-for-profit organization, without receiving the proper authority.

The auditor also found that BRCC failed to properly account for three weapons, valued at $1,534, in the LPAA system. Mitchell said the weapons were the property of the college's security team.
