Brian McEckron (left), chief of the Lake Jackson Volunteer FD, will be fired from his post, officials said to the Tallahassee Democrat.
Police say McEckron stole a $1,500 ice-maker from a city water facility and was busted when a maintenance worker saw the machine stashed under a tarp on McEckron's property. The fire chief then confessed to stealing another ice-maker valued at $300, police said.
It beats me as to what a fire chief would be doing with two industrial-grade ice machines. Any guesses?
