INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A private former license branch operator has suspended two former Bureau of Motor Vehicles officials caught up in a state ethics investigation ordered by Gov. Mike Pence.

Express MVA CEO Kevin Calvert told The Indianapolis Star for a report Thursday that Chief Operating Officer Shawn Walters and Director of Special Operations Robert Wood were fired last week.

The two had been suspended without pay last month after Pence canceled the company's contract and ordered the ethics investigation. The Star had reported Walters allowed Express MVA in 2010 to open a private license branch with access to the BMV's computer system while letting the company charge customers including auto dealerships convenience fees for title and registration work.

Wood says he has done nothing wrong.

Walters has no published telephone number.
