Default Money from County commissary "disappeared"

So my man was recently sentenced which meant he went from one County jail to another County jail while he waited 3 days until he was taken down to reception. When he left the first county jail he had approximately $100 on his commissary account. It was still visible to him when he was in the second County he said as he checked it the night he left. But he has none of that in Reception. I called the first County jail and they said they cut a check to the transporting officer to take to the other county jail... that county jail says they have nothing on record for it being received and have no idea where it is or where it would have went. They said to call the prison/reception to see if it went with him there. So basically I think somewhere along the line somebody is pocketing the money. I don't know where it is and i could keep making phone callsa nd hassling people trying to track it down but his mom said that he wouldnt want it at all to possibly hurt him... you know, don't swat any nests to track down the money. However it was MY money not hers.. but is $100 worth any chance of someone being harder on him? do they do that? Does money ever show up at the prison but not in reception?

If it was a check, then it would be difficult for a transporting officer to pocket the funds. It is entirely possible that it is sitting in a folder and needs to be processed, either by sending from Facility #2 to DOC *OR* that Facility #2 forwarded it to DOC and it simply needs to be processed. If Facility #2 knew he was only going to be there a few days, it would not have made sense to process the check and to have instead left it paper-clipped inside of a booking folder...

Depending on how long he has been at DOC, you may just need to give this some time. If it has been a few weeks since being received, then ask County #1 to void the check and re-issue it.

Thank you! that makes a lot of sense... I know County #2 uses a debit card but County #1 specified it was a check. So okay i will keep waiting
