FULTON COUNTY, Ind. - An investigation has revealed a northern-Indiana town marshal stole nearly $7,000 from his town over the course of 5 years.
Indiana State Police (ISP) said part-time Fulton Town Marshal Jason R. Coleman, 37, was arrested Wednesday on seven felony counts.
ISP said a 2-month-long investigation revealed that Coleman, of Rochester, Ind., had been recording worked hours for compensation that he never actually worked.
ISP said Coleman (who, at the time of the investigation was the Rochester Police Chief) had collected roughly $6,700 over the course of 5 years.
Coleman turned himself in to the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday and bonded out. He has been charged with official misconduct, a Class C felony; and six counts of theft, Class D felonies.
