The two missing Ford Explorers that the school system lost may have been found – in the driveways of Superintendent Robert Runcie and his right hand aide, Maurice Woods.
The transportation department botched the paperwork when they gave the vehicles to Runcie and Woods, thus auditor could not find them, according to several high-placed source involved in the system.
The two four-door Ford Explorers XLT 4X2 trucks were among the almost $1 million in equipment that the transportation department could not account for during a routine audit last year. The audit was made public last week and Browardbeat.com’s post on it is here.
“All I know is that both have white Ford Explorers (from the system),” said a high school system source.
A second source said that when Runcie was asked if the truck he drives was one of the missing Explorers, he conceded that “it could be.”
Runcie and Woods, who’s formal title is the system’s chief strategy and operations officer, could not be reached for comment.
