GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a central Indiana paramedic stole vials of the painkiller fentanyl from ambulances that were intended for patient use. State police say 41-year-old Jason Howard of Fishers was arrested Monday on charges of theft and possession of narcotics. An investigation started in May after a fire department discovered evidence that several vials of fentanyl had been tampered with. Investigators determined at least 34 vials were allegedly taken from departments in five Indiana counties.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Two former divers are suing USA Diving, accusing the national governing body of ignoring or obstructing inquiries into allegations that a coach sexually abused them when they were young athletes. The lawsuit names Indianapolis-based USA Diving, Inc., the Ohio State University Diving Club and Will Bohonyi. The suit says Bohonyi coerced and forced the divers into frequent sex, telling them, "You owe me this." Calls Monday to a telephone listing for Bohonyi's most recent address went unanswered.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - More than 100 acres of woodland along southern Indiana's Lake Monroe has been added to the Hoosier National Forest. The property is near the Hardin Ridge Recreation Area that's operated by the U.S. Forest Service. Hoosier National Forest official Ron Scott says the family that owned the land was patient as funding was sought for the $445,000 purchase.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has given prosecutors until Thursday to formally charge a man who's being held in the 1988 slaying of an 8-year-old Indiana girl. Fifty-nine-year-old John D. Miller of Grabill was arrested Sunday on preliminary murder, child molesting and criminal confinement charges in April Marie Tinsley's abduction, rape and killing. Court documents state that Miller's DNA matches DNA recovered from Tinsley's underwear.
