4 resign in wake of DPS fuel misuse investigation

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Four Alabama Department of Public Safety employees have resigned in the wake of a criminal probe surrounding the misuse of department-issued fuel cards.

ADPS would not identify the former employees beyond confirmation that 3 were sworn officers and 1 was a civilian.

In a news release Tuesday, State Trooper Steve Jarrett said that all 4 employees resigned before termination proceedings could be brought against them.

The investigation's findings will be turned over to prosecutors, and "a decision regarding prosecutorial services is under review."

The Department launched the criminal investigation in March after discrepancies were found during routine fuel record checks.

The investigation comes as the department wrestles with rising fuel costs. As the investigation started in March DPS had already scaled back all State Troopers to just 75 miles of travel expenses per day because of budget cutbacks.

While it won't rain on everyone, there is equal opportunity for almost all counties to get some activity by the end of the day. Wet weat...
