Deputies Under Investigation

By  | 

The investigation into alleged wrongdoing by three Grimes County Sheriff employees has been turned over to the Travis County District Attorney's office. On Tuesday, Sergeant Investigator Greg Eakens, Patrol Sergeant Ryan Schroeder and Investigator Angela Schroeder all resigned amid allegations that they falsified information on federal paperwork.

Angela Schroeder is accused of providing false data on a Medicaid benefits application. Eakens and Ryan Schroeder are accused of conspiring with Angela Schroeder to defraud the federal medical program.

Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell says the department is shocked. "I hate to see it. But it happened and their due process will have to prevail through those other sources in Travis County."
