Grand jury to investigate possible theft by former sheriff's department employees

NOW: Grand jury to investigate possible theft by former sheriff’s department employees


ELKHART, Ind. -- The Elkhart County Prosecutor's Office has requested that a grand jury investigate allegations that three former civilian employees of the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department were paid for work they did not perform.

In September 2017, Sheriff Brad Rogers asked the Indiana State Police to investigate claims that three process servers employed by the department were paid for 2,500 hours of work between 2014 and 2017, which they did not perform.

The department estimates those unearned hours cost it $45,000.

The process servers were terminated from their employment with the sheriff's department.

After reviewing the Indiana State Police investigation and the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department's investigation, the prosecuting attorney requested a grand jury be convened to investigate and determine whether charges are appropriate.

The grand jury is scheduled to convene on September 11, 2018.

Grand jury proceedings are not public.
