The former commander of the Indiana State Police Toll Road Post had his first court appearance Monday after being arrested last week.

The Dallard Tackett faces 17 criminal charges including six counts of forgery, ten counts of theft and one count of official misconduct.

Police say Tackett stole more than $90,000 from the department.

He is being charged in Elkhart county, where most of the transactions took place.

A plea bargain deadline was set for February 28th in Monday's hearing.

Tackett resigned back in August after allegations first surfaced.
