Chief Charged With 14 Counts Of Tampering With Official Records
INDIAN LAKE, Texas (AP) — A South Texas police chief is charged with 14 counts of tampering with governmental records.
Indian Lake Police Chief John Chambers was arrested Wednesday by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and investigators from the Cameron County District Attorney's Office.
Chambers is accused of knowingly making a false entry in a governmental record in January about firearms qualification for some of his deputies.
Mayor Barbara Collum says town commissioners will decide what actions to take early next week regarding Chambers. She says she has appointed another officer in charge of the department for the time being.
It wasn't immediately known if Chambers has an attorney.
