Asheville's police chief said he'll hire a civilian manager for the evidence room that's under state investigation for missing guns, drugs and money.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that Chief William Anderson said Friday at a news conference that the manager will oversee an all-civilian staff while maintaining close contact with uniformed officers.

Anderson wouldn't discuss the ongoing investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation or the results of a private audit of the evidence room that the city paid for.

District Attorney Ron Moore has refused to release the audit, saying it was part of the SBI investigation.
