The State of Indiana has dropped charges against former Hamlet Street Superintendent John Goble, Sr.
Any outstanding summons regarding charges in this case have been ordered revoked.
Goble had resigned from the Town of Hamlet in January, and his temporary replacement reportedly could not find certain pieces of equipment. A current equipment inventory list and receipts did not match. A warrant was issued for Goble’s arrest and he was arrested in late March on a charge of theft. He pleaded not guilty to the charge in Starke Circuit Court.
After further investigation, the State of Indiana filed a motion to dismiss the cause without prejudice, which was signed on June 27.
