WESTFORD (CBS) — An investigation was opened over a year ago into the disappearance of an undisclosed amount of money from the Westford Police Department evidence room, the town of Westford said Thursday.

In a statement, the town said the money was from closed criminal cases, and had been stored in the locked evidence room. The statement said the money was discovered missing on August 14, 2015.

"The Town's police chief immediately contacted the Middlesex District Attorney and the Attorney General's offices to alert them to this situation," the town's statement read. "The Attorney General's office conducted an investigation which is in the process of being completed."

The town said the Westford Police Department would conduct their own internal investigation once the AG's office was finished, and wouldn't comment further until then.

The state's Attorney General's office would not confirm or deny if they were looking into the matter.
