HENDRICKS COUNTY (May 13, 2014) – A husband and wife who are deputies in Hendricks County were fired Tuesday after the vote of a merit board.

Jason and Teresa Woods face four department violations including conduct unbecoming. According to Sheriff Dave Galloway, the couple agreed to hold $250,000 for a friend. They were then told to meet someone to give the money back. Jason Woods said he made the exchange; the other person said he never received the money.

The incident occurred in Marion County in October 2013.

They’re accused of failing to report a crime they had knowledge of. Jason Woods has been with the department for 15 years and his wife Teresa has been there for about three years, Galloway said. They were suspended without pay on March 12.

They have 30 days to file an appeal.
