Susan Queen, the former secretary of the Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District, was indicted last week for credit card abuse.

The 216th Judicial District Grand Jury met Oct. 27, and returned a true bill against Queen, who was consequently arrested Oct. 29 by the Bandera County Sheriff's Office.

According to Chief Deputy Don Berger, Queen is accused of making unauthorized charges of $3,186.74 on one county-owned credit card and $3,700.94 on another county-owned credit card. Berger said cash receipts for $817 are also missing. Records indicate Queen quietly paid back a total of $4,800 on the cards.

"She tried to pay for it and cover it up, but she did not have enough money," Berger said.

Queen was released from her duties with the water board earlier this year.

This woman has for years laughed and snickered at people adressing the water board. She is down right rude at times and now we all know she is a thief on top of it all. If she continues to say she was mentally unstable why not put her away now and save the jury's time. I hope they throw the book at this woman. Good bye Susan Cooke Queen

I would like to see the water dist's books for the last couple of years. I would bet this is only the start. This Susan Queen woman was different. She looked down on people she didn't like to the point of lying about things that happened in the district. She should go to jail for stealing and for silently trying to cover it up. The District's board member were trying to say no money was missing just put in wrong accounts. That story was being told until three days before the story broke.
Maybe some of the board member should be looked at for trying to help Queen cover this up.
Theft of public funds. Hang her.

outraged You must have nothing to do with your time.
A publically funded water district employee steals taxpayer's money and all you can say is "blah, blah, blah".
Maybe if it was your money you would be concerned also but since you appear to be in Midway Texas why don't you shut up and mind your own busness??
Midway too boring?

For someone who enjoys pointing out how other people are uneducated, your use of grammar is appalling. "Your a sick puppy" makes no sense.

You don't even know what a sick puppy you are so why would you understand.
Please just comment on the subject, if you know how, or as you posted before take Ben Franklin's advise.
You are the only one here who commented on uneducated, not me. Although now that you bring it up......
I know what you are thinking---blah, blah, blah
Talk about uneducated where did you learn that?

If Vaselka killed that child he should be executed.
I never said he should be cried for. How about proving him guilty before hanging him??
Now Susan Queen stole that taxpayer money, she admitted it and should be prosecuted.
I have said many times Bruce Curry is not hinest in his dealings.
What the hell is wrong with you barb? You sound a little old and uneducated yourself.

You might wonder what took months to get this far in prosecution.
The Board members knew she stole the money and told anyone asking about it she only put money in a wrong account, that nothing was ever stolen. That is a lie.
Then General Manager of the water board David Jeffery says he wished they haden't had to turn it over to the police. They wished they could have covered it up completely.
Susan Cook Queen stole the money and needs to be prosecuted like anyone else, lets not try to hide this as business as usual.

No it is called "lets make a deal". This crooked woman will never spend a day in jail. As a matter of fact look for a plea bargain with probation or deferred adjudication which will come off her record when she completes her probation. It called favored treatment for the local higher ups. Sick bunch of people. I wouldn't want this woman in my house or business thats for sure.

Last night the water board received their audit. It was squeeky clean.
A man in the audiance asked how it could be perfect when this Queen woman stole money from the district and the auditor refered the question to board president Jim Chastain who also refused to clarify how that could happen.
Then board member Jerry Sides said the question and answer period was over and he told Chastain he didn't have to answer the question. Chastain didn't answer.
Same old cover up with board member who aren't accountable to the taxpayers for loss of funds stolen by their employees.
Jerry Sides and Jim Chastain should resign and stop the game playing.

I think that Jim Chastain and Jerry Sides need the FBI to come to Bandera to talk to them.
These are two bad people. ully doesn't cover it. They do what they like and if it is against the law oh well.
