(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - New information has surfaced regarding the arrest of a Dearborn County Sheriff’s Deputy.
Mike Fogle was arrested Friday on charges of Theft, Forgery, Official Misconduct, Obstruction of Justice and Perjury.
Investigators with the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit allege in a court affidavit that Fogle had been turning in inaccurate time sheets with the sheriff’s office from January 2007 through March 2010.
An internal investigation revealed 84 hours during that period which Fogle claimed he worked overtime as part of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute’s Operation Pull Over, but did not.
During those hours, Fogle had filed zero tickets and logged no radio hours with the Dearborn County Communications dispatch center.
Special Crimes Unit Detective Tom McKay interviewed Fogle on April 12 when “Fogle made several material statements under oath related to this investigation which he knew to be untrue, based upon testimony of other witnesses and this investigation.”
Fogle bonded out of jail Monday. He had been held at the Ripley County Jail in Versailles because of his role as a deputy in Dearborn County.
