GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Brown County Sheriff John Gossage says a former DARE program officer and two other people conspired to steal money by printing fake parking passes for Packers games.

The case has been referred to the district attorney’s office for possible charges.

Gossage says his reaction was “betrayal and disbelief.” He says the former DARE officer “tarnished the badge.”

Capt. Jeff Sanborn says the conspiracy was discovered during a Packers-Vikings game Oct. 2. The parking was a fundraiser for the DARE program.

Investigators don’t know how much money was embezzled, but told reporters Friday that the former officer turned in about $1,200 and resigned two days after he was suspended.

The other two suspects are a former county printing employee and a drug-and-alcohol abuse counselor,

DARE stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education.
