The former President and CEO of the LaGrange County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) turned himself into the LaGrange County Jail this morning after formal theft charges had been filed against him.

According to Indiana State Police Detective David Poe, on January 24, 2018 he was asked to initiate an investigation after the EDC had asked an outside firm to conduct an internal audit which found several unauthorized credit card purchases made by Ryne R. Krock between June 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017. 

The total of unauthorized purchases was approximately $4,000.00.

Poe’s completed investigation was turned over to the LaGrange County Prosecutor’s Office for review at the end of February.  They have since levied the following charges against Krock:

  • Two (2) Counts of Theft, Level 6 Felonies
  • One (1) Count of Theft, Class A Misdemeanor
