THE SMALL CITY OF CASHION, OKLAHOMA, IS HAVING AN UPHEAVAL in its emergency services agencies lately. Last month, the town’s police chief resigned abruptly and fled the state just a step ahead of the filing of criminal charges against him. Former police chief Ron Nelson has been charged in a neighboring county for conspiracy and fraudulent application with regards to a CLEET (police training) certification.
Now it has also been disclosed that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating Fire Chief /Emergency Management Director Danny Clark and his wife Stephanie who is the town’s clerk and treasurer. They are suspected of embezzlement and other “questionable financial transactions,” according to the mayor.
Update: It was just one month ago that STATter911 reported on this same couple who responded to a fatal auto crash that turned out to be their daughter who was the victim. Check that story HERE.
KWTV Ch. 6 has the video report HERE.
