A special prosecutor has been appointed to review the case against a man accused of stealing from the town he was elected to keep tabs on, according to the Goshen News.
Tom Wilson of Angola will be looking into the two felony charges of theft and one felony count of official misconduct filed against LaGrange town clerk, Michael Rowlison, who was arrested last week.
According to police, Rowlison used a town credit card for personal spending.
Officers have since recovered much of the stolen loot from his Poplar St. home, which sits just a few blocks from the LaGrange own Hall.
During questioning, Rowlison told police he'd made personal purchases over a period of about five years.
The town of LaGrange is now preparing to call a state auditor to review its books.
