TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The former office and financial manager of the Terre Haute International Airport has been arrested on 33 felony counts.
Rose Overpeck, 41, of Terre Haute, was arrested around 12:30 on Thursday afternoon for 18 counts of theft, 11 counts of forgery and four counts of fraud.
Indiana State Police report the 33 felony counts involve monetary losses totaling approximately $41,430.
Detectives from Indiana State Police Special Investigations Organized Crime and Corruption Unit were notified in February of possible missing funds from the airport.
After a nearly seven month long investigation, officials believe Overpeck wrote unauthorized checks on accounts from the Terre Haute International Airport, used unauthorized credit accounts at area businesses, made unauthorized purchases, cashed checks made payable to the airport and took petty cash from the airport – all for personal use.
Overpeck was taken to the Vigo County Jail and is being held on $100,000 bond.
