BROWN COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio Inspector General released a report Thursday claiming state wildlife officers in Brown County routinely hunted while on the clock, often seeking overtime after a day of bagging deer, turkey or squirrels.

The agency's findings led to theft in office indictments Thursday in a Brown County court of an Ohio Department of Natural Resources supervisor, David Warner, and an ODNR employee, Matthew Roberts. Another employee, Allan Wright, was named in the investigation but had already been charged in federal court on unrelated charges.
