In­di­ana State Po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant Fri­day morn­ing at the Lakes of the Four Sea­sons se­cu­rity depart­ment, a spokes­woman said.

“The in­ves­ti­ga­tion was for­warded to the state po­lice from the In­di­ana At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice and in­volves vi­o­la­tions re­lated to con­trolled sub­stances, im­per­son­ation of pub­lic ser­vants, crim­i­nal con­fine­ment and other po­ten­tial crim­i­nal of­fenses re­lated to traf­fic stops,” Sgt. Ann Wo­jas said in a news re­lease.

Wo­jas said it was an “on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­volv­ing mul­ti­ple al­le­ga­tions.”

“There will be no fur­ther in­for­ma­tion pro­vided on the in­ves­ti­ga­tion at this time,” Wo­jas said.

The In­di­ana Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion re­cently re­voked the Lakes of the Four Sea­sons se­cu­rity depart­ment’s emer­gency ve­hi­cle des­ig­na­tion af­ter find­ing the depart­ment used im­proper lights.

“The ve­hi­cle des­ig­na­tion from INDOT re­quires that you use yel­low and white lights. They were us­ing red and blue,” Adam Park­house, INDOT spokesman, said.

Mul­ti­ple agen­cies be­gan in­ves­ti­gat­ing Lakes of the Four Sea­sons af­ter the In­di­ana At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice re­ceived a com­plaint about emer­gency ve­hi­cles, Park­house said.

In­di­ana State Po­lice then no­ti­fied INDOT, since INDOT has the author­ity to des­ig­nate emer­gency ve­hi­cles, of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, ac­cord­ing to Park­house. State po­lice as­sisted INDOT with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, he said.

Melissa Gustafson, an At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice spokes­woman, pre­vi­ously said, “We can­not con­firm that we have re­ceived a com­plaint or that we have in­ves­ti­gated or are in­ves­ti­gat­ing Lakes of Four Sea­sons.”

A post Oct. 24 on the official Lakes of the Four Sea­sons In­for­ma­tion pages states “we are stunned” by the re­vo­ca­tion by INDOT.

“One of the great­est as­sets of our Pub­lic Safety Depart­ment is their quick re­sponse to emer­gency sit­u­a­tions. We will con­tinue to serve, but this may have to be done with am­ber light­ing (a yel­low col­ored light) in­stead of what we have been ac­cus­tomed to (red and blue),” the post states.
