This afternoon, Janean Arrowood, 41, from 4008 Carl Thomas Drive in Scottsburg, IN turned herself into the Floyd County Superior Court #3. She turned herself into the court after an arrest warrant for her arrest was issued for four counts of felony theft and four counts of felony forgery.
The arrest warrant was the result of an investigation that began back in September of 2014 when the Indiana State Police was contacted by a representative of the Edwardsville Water Company. The representative requested an investigation into the allegations that Janean Arrowood, an employee with the water company, had allegedly stolen over $351,000.00 from the water company during the years of 2012 through 2014.
Detective David Makowsky from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg was assigned the case and after his investigation was completed he learned that Janean Arrowood, was allegedly writing herself checks from the water company and allegedly forging the name of the company treasurer to the checks. She would then cash the checks and keep the money. It was discovered this was happening after an alert security officer at the bank where the water company does business noticed the transactions. The security officer notified the water company which ultimately led to the arrest warrant being issued.
This investigation is continuing.
