INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced that 15 people have been charged in a statewide corruption investigation led by the State Board of Accounts along with the FBI, Indiana State Police and several county prosecutors.
Minkler said total losses from the corruption exceed $1 million with the biggest loss in Indianapolis.
Jacqueline Fitzgerald and Monica Durrett, employees of the Indianapolis Local Public Bond Bank are alleged to have stolen approximately $400,000 in a case that is currently pending with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.
“The alleged misappropriation does not affect bond proceeds or bond debt service payments, all of which are maintained by outside Trustee banks and are subject to annual audit and disclosure requirements,” read a statement by Mayor Joe Hogsett’s office when the Bond Bank investigation was announced in July.
