In 2022, the newly-elected Sheriff Scottie Maples "discovered many unnerving and possible criminal activities by Jamey Noel", and requested that the Indiana State Police investigate. Maples discovered a "secret recording device" in the assistant chief's office that "led directly" to Noel's office. Maples learned that Noel had ordered several sheriff's office employees to "work and perform maintenance on his personal property, investment properties, and business properties" during their work hours.[8]
