(PUTNAM CO.) - After a nearly three month Indiana State Police Putnamville District investigation into missing funds from the Madison Township Volunteer Fire Department, officers have arrested the former treasurer.

Police arrested 45-year-old Tammy Dickerson, of Greencastle on two felony counts of theft and a felony count of official misconduct.

She is being held at the Putnam County Jail on a $20,000 cash bond

In November 2016, Indiana State Police were contacted by members of the Madison Township Volunteer Fire Department (MTVFD) about potential missing funds from the department's bank accounts. A subsequent investigation revealed that on several occasions in years 2014 through 2016, Tammy Dickerson in her then position as treasurer, is alleged to have utilized MTVFD funds totaling approximately $80,216.72 for personal use, such as cash withdrawals, personal bills, and purchases at local retail stores.

The case was investigated by ISP Detective Brian Maudlin.

Friday afternoon, after an attempt by Indiana State Police Troopers and Greencastle Police officers to serve the warrant, Dickerson was finally spotted at her house Friday evening by GPD officers and arrested.
