MADISON, Ind. (AP) — A former southern Indiana jail commander faces theft and other charges for allegedly pocketing money posted for inmates’ bonds.
Thirty-three-year-old Andrew Horine was arrested Thursday by State Police at his home in the Ohio River city of Madison. He was later released after posting a $2,000 cash-only bond.
Horine faces 10 counts of theft and other charges, including obstruction of justice.
He had been Jefferson County’s jail commander from August 2014 until he was terminated on Dec. 12.
