PERRY COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - The search is on for a former southern Indiana school superintendent.
Marion Chapman, of Cannelton, Indiana was removed from his position in December of 2011 after an audit revealed he overpaid himself more than $200,000 and quit paying the school's federal taxes. The audit also found he misspent more than $300,000 from a trust.
Now, Chapman is wanted on two felony theft counts and two felony counts of official misconduct.
Perry County Prosecutor Rod Acchiadro explained, "Normally, we do not extradite defendants who are more than 250 miles from our borders. In this case, I have authorized all law enforcement agencies in Indiana to extend that to the borders of the united states. So, wherever he may be, we will find him and arrest him."
The Perry County prosecutor said the Federal Bureau of Investigations is also looking into the case and that federal charges could also be filed against Chapman.
