Indiana State Police: Former Jennings Co. Clerk, Auditor arrested for stealing over $60K

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A former auditor and clerk in Jennings County, Ind., is accused of stealing over $60,000 while in office, according to Indiana State Police.

Police say Cathy Jo Robertson, 40, of North Vernon has been under investigation since 2013 when an audit determined there was missing money and there had been unauthorized checks issued when she worked for both offices.

Between Jan. 2009 and April 2011, Robertson allegedly stole over $61,000 from the Jennings County Clerk’s Office. Then, between July 2013 and Oct. 2013, Roberston allegedly forged checks for over $3,500 while working for the Jennings County Auditor’s Office.

Robertson was arrested Thursday afternoon when she turned herself in at the Jennings County Jail after an almost 3-year investigation.

She is being held on a $25,500 bond.
