Indiana State Police have arrested former Boonville Assistant Police Chief Terry Winkler for allegedly stealing over $21,000 from the Warrick County Fraternal Order of Police. 

36-year-old Terry J. Winkler of Grandview, IN faces 19 Counts of Theft, Class D Felony.

Winkler was arrested at 10:30 Monday morning after he turned himself in at the Warrick County Jail. 

He was later released after posting a $5,000 cash bond.

Indiana State Police initiated a criminal investigation in March after being contacted by Warrick County F.O.P. board members regarding missing funds. 

During the investigation, the Detective determined Winkler made 19 unauthorized bank transactions from the Warrick County F.O.P. account and deposited over $21,000 into his personal accounts.

Winker allegedly made the unauthorized transactions between April 2010 and July 2011 while he served as president of the Warrick County F.O.P. 

Winkler resigned from his position as Boonville Assistant Police Chief in March 2012.
