No Criminal Charges Against Orland Cops

A spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor has deter­mined there is insuf­fi­cient evi­dence of crim­i­nal intent involv­ing the case of Orland Town Mar­shall Brooke Nor­ton and her deputy Ken­neth Steele, over the accep­tance of Oper­a­tion Pullover money dur­ing reg­u­lar police hours. The find­ing comes fol­low­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion that included the Indi­ana State Police, and was made final by pros­e­cu­tors from the Whit­ley County pros­e­cu­tors office. It all began when the Angola Police Depart­ment raised ques­tions about Nor­ton and Steele get­ting Oper­a­tion Pullover money for work dur­ing their reg­u­larly sched­uled police duties. Oper­a­tion Pullover money is intended to be used for over­time that police offi­cers work dur­ing a spe­cial enforce­ment. It wasn’t a lot of money either… only about $1,000 for Nor­ton, and less than $200 for Steele that all the con­tro­versy was about. Now, no crim­i­nal charges will be pur­sued because there is insuf­fi­cient evi­dence of crim­i­nal intent.
