ORLAND, Calif. — In an email to the media and city officials Tuesday afternoon Orland Police Chief Paula Carr attempted to set the record straight about why she was placed on paid administrative leave and allegations she misappropriated public funds.

"I found myself in a situation over the Glenn County Fair weekend (May 21-22) where I needed to be at two places at one time," Carr wrote. "The Orland Police K-9 Booth was an important place to be in order to promote the program that we wanted to bring to the community and raise funds to support the program and get it up and running."
