Chester County’s newest Sheriff Alex Underwood has been in office only 15 days, and is already dealing with a nightmare when it comes to paperwork.

A conference room table at the Law Enforcement Complex in Chester is stacked with hundreds of arrest warrants that have either been unserved or not entered into a database that tells deputies a subject has an warrant for their arrest.

“They’re finding more and more everyday, I think they found another stack this morning,” said Underwood.

Employees have found stacks of unsorted warrants in desk drawers, boxes and in vacant cubicles within the office.

The Sheriff said a former employee even brought in warrants she was keeping at her home.
