CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Federal prosecutors are investigating the handling of evidence in a Mingo County drug case linked to a corruption probe.

Mingo County Sheriff James Smith says a former deputy delivered a box of evidence to the sheriff's department on Monday afternoon.

The delivery came several hours after a circuit court judge dismissed the drug charges against George White of Delbarton.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Ruby says federal prosecutors are investigating.

One of White's attorneys, David Barney, and Boone County prosecutor Keith Randolph say they don't think the evidence would have had an impact on White's case. Randolph served as special prosecutor for the case.
