A Virginia man who once worked as a financial advisor in Madison County was arrested Monday on charges of forgery, identity deception and theft, according to Indiana State Police.

Casey J. Kemerly, 38 of Lee County, Virginia, was arrested in Virginia and arraigned in Madison County Circuit Court through a Zoom video call as part of an investigation that began in May 2019.

Indiana State Police spokesman Sgt. John Bowling in a release said a former business associate in 2019 alleged Kemerly stole files and a computer from her office. The woman said Kemerly used her clients to start his own business in Pendleton, Indiana. 

“There were also claims of forged signatures and documents,” Bowling said in the release, adding that police issued a warrant for Kemerly’s arrest “after a lengthy investigation.”

Kemerly is charged with a felony offense against a computer user, forgery with intent to defraud, identity deception, a felony offense against intellectual property, felony theft of between $750 and $50,000 and one count of misdemeanor theft.

The Madison County Prosecutor’s Office is handling the case.
