A grand jury has been requested to investigate allegations that three former civilian workers of the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department were paid for work they did not perform.

It was nearly a year ago that the investigation into the money paid began.

Sheriff Brad Rogers asked the Indiana State Police to check into claims that three former process servers employed by the department were paid for 2,500 hours of work between 2014 and 2017, which they did not perform, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

The department estimates those unearned hours cost it $45,000, ABC 57 reported.

The prosecuting attorney requested a grand jury be convened to investigate and determine whether criminal charges are in order.
