MINDEN, La. (AP) - Another Webster Parish fire chief has been arrested - making five parish chiefs arrested in the past five years.
Tuesday's arrest of 47-year-old David W. Camp on charges of improper spending came just hours before a counterpart in a neighboring district resigned amid a criminal investigation on similar allegations.
In January 2010, former Shongaloo Fire Chief Charles Ray Duke Jr. was arrested on multiple felony charges related to allegations he used taxpayer money and donations to pay household bills and make personal purchases.
Former Cullen Assistant Fire Chief Mark Eubanks was arrested in 2007 on child pornography charges.
The Times reports Camp was booked on charges of malfeasance and unauthorized use of an access device over $5,000. His bond was set at $20,000.
