PERU, Ind. (AP) – A northern Indiana prosecutor has harshly criticized other officials in his county for not adequately dealing with computer problems that have effectively brought some business to a halt.

Prosecutor Bruce Embrey tells the Peru Tribune that Miami County government’s servers have crashed “far too often.” The week-old server crash is the third this year.

Embrey says some work can get done, but personal calendars remain down, traffic tickets are piling up and even child support payments aren’t being sent out.

Commissioners Vice Chairman Larry West says everyone’s frustrated and that the commissioners are working on a long-term solution. He says the county’s emergency management agency and payroll have gone back online and he hopes the servers are fully operating Monday morning in the county about 80 miles north of Indianapolis. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
