Former police chief chargedMay 1, 2020
From Local Sources
GEORGETOWN — The former police chief of Georgetown, a Floyd County community northwest of the Louisville area, has been charged with official misconduct after a seven-month investigation.
In September, Indiana State Police Detective Craig Starr was assigned the investigation after Georgetown authorities requested an investigation into possible misuse or misappropriation of department funds.
Starr, a detective with the ISP Organized Crime and Corruption unit, was assisted by a forensic examiner from the Indiana State Board of Accounts. Among the findings, the investigation and subsequent audit revealed more than $8,000 in tow-in fees that were not deposited with the town clerk-treasurer as required.
Former police chief Dennis Kunkle was charged Thursday with Level 6 felony official misconduct and misdemeanor failure to deposit public funds and conversion.
