Former Drug Task Force Employee Indicted

A September 21st arraignment in Putnam County criminal court has been set for two Sparta residents, accused of stealing money from the local Drug Task Force. 59-year-old Gail Carr and her husband, 52-year-old John Paul Carr, were indicted after a TBI agent presented evidence to the grand jury. Authorities say the two are implicated in the alleged misuse of a credit card belonging to the Drug Task Force. Mrs. Carr had been employed there for several years, but resigned after an investigation began. Both are free on bond, pending their court appearance.
