NORTH VERNON, Ind. – A former southern Indiana police officer was arrested Monday following an investigation that revealed she allegedly stole evidence and altered medical records.

Indiana State Police detectives began investigating in February after discrepancies were discovered during a routine internal audit of the property being stored in the North Vernon Police Department’s evidence room.

The investigation led detectives to believe that Brandy Blevins, 43, stole numerous items of evidence while working as a detective.

Police also believe Blevins altered medical records from Schneck Medical Center and submitted them to the department during an internal investigation being conducted in December 2015.

State police arrested Blevins Monday afternoon and transported her to the Jennings County Jail, where she was charged with official misconduct, forgery and theft.

Blevins resigned from her position with the North Vernon Police Department in February 2016.
