FULTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Fulton town marshal turns himself in after a two-month long investigation by Indiana State Police.
The investigation began over claims that 37-year-old Jason Coleman had been submitting hours for compensation that he never worked during his time as police chief of Rochester.
ISP Detective Mike Tarrh found that Coleman collected more than $6,500 over the last five years.
Coleman turned himself into the Fulton County Jail Wednesday evening and has since bonded out.
Coleman has been charged with official misconduct, a Class C felony, and six counts of theft, which are Class D felonies.
