(CARMEL) - A Carmel police officer faces charges in connection with the theft from an auto dealership.
Police say the arrest of officer Michael B. Flynn, 33, is the result of a two- month investigation. Flynn is charged with felony counts of forgery, auto theft, official misconduct and obstruction of justice.
The investigation began on September 18 with a report of a stolen white 1995 Lexus from Penske Chevrolet in Carmel. As detectives began their investigation, they discovered that it was recently registered to Flynn, who worked off duty security for the dealership during the time when the vehicle was stolen.
Once the investigation was completed, the case was submitted to the Hamilton County prosecutor's office and Flynn was formally charged on Monday. Bond was set at $10,000.
Flynn has worked for the Carmel Police Dept. since September of 1999. He has been placed on administrative leave without pay pending the resolution of the charges.
