Indiana State Police said in March of 2018, troopers received information Carroll may have shared information about drug operations with a Daviess County resident. Carroll admitted to putting a confidential informant at risk. "During the investigation it was revealed that Carroll allegedly compromised undercover drug operations and put undercover officers at risk by sharing sensitive material," said Indiana State Police at the time.
Carroll has the option to appeal the Board's decision to remove him as an officer.
