DETROIT, July 31 (UPI) -- Officials in Detroit say two new computers and dozens of other items are missing from the office of resigned City Council President Pro Tem Monica Conyers.

Conyers is being threatened with police action if the 29 items valued at more than $20,000 are not returned, the Detroit Free Press reported Friday.

Council President Ken Cockrell Jr. spent Thursday morning hand delivering a memo to his council colleagues that details the city-owned office equipment that has disappeared.

Two of the missing computers were delivered just days before Conyers announced her resignation.

The 56-year-old Conyers faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal bribery charge.

Her attorney, Steve Fishman, denies his client is guilty of any wrongdoing.

"Monica Conyers did not take any property belonging to the City of Detroit, nor did she authorize anyone else to do so," Fishman says.
