During a raid in August, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office took more than $5,000 from Afroman’s home in Ohio. The rapper got that money back on Tuesday, but it was short $400.
Afroman, whose real name is Joseph Foreman and whose songs include “Because I Got High” and “Colt 45,” said on Instagram that the sheriff’s office changed evidence and stole the money.
Adams County Sheriff Kimmy Rogers told The Enquirer on Wednesday that the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation will be in charge of the investigation into the missing money.
He said that the missing evidence was unusual and that anything could have happened.
Rogers said that, according to protocol, the cash would have been put in a sealed bag before being put in the evidence room.

A search warrant obtained by Fox 19 says that on August 21, armed sheriff’s deputies went to Afroman’s home in Winchester, Adams County, to look for marijuana and drug paraphernalia. They were looking for him because they thought he was involved in drug trafficking and kidnapping.
Sheriff Rogers said that deputies took $5,031 in cash because they thought it had to do with selling drugs. At the time, Afroman told TMZ that his home also had a small amount of marijuana taken from it. Rogers said that the lab is still testing some of the things that were taken.
The sheriff said that no charges have been brought against Afroman yet, but that could change once lab results are in.
On Instagram, the rapper also said that he would sue the Adams County Sheriff’s Office for smearing their name. The Enquirer tried to get a comment from his lawyer, Anna Castellini but did not hear back.
