A Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy Sergeant has resigned amid speculation that he falsified department documents.

Lane Eitel, 54, was charged Wednesday with four counts of forgery and three counts of theft.

According to court documents, Eitel claimed overtime hours for traffic stops he did not make.

Reports also indicate he filed about 50 false traffic tickets.

Eitel had previously served as the department’s public information officer.

He resigned earlier this month.
