LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People caught taking advantage of the unemployment system in Indiana are being arrested.
A joint task force between the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and Marion County prosecutors resulted in charges in nine unemployment fraud cases last month.
The new initiative is targeting Indiana residents who steal money intended for workers who have lost a job and can't find a new one.
State officials estimate that fraudulent unemployment claims in Indiana exceeded $13 million last year.
