Some East Texans are questioning Crockett police chief Jimmy Fishers integrity. Randy Minton, a former Crockett resident, gave KTRE a letter that the police chief wrote, but may never have found out about it without some help. Minton said, "I was contacted by several Crockett police officers because I used to have a website where I obtained documents and I found it interesting so I submitted an open record request to DPS and got a copy of it."

Some Crockett residents are accusing the chief of stealing his own sons identity to open 3 credit card accounts. In the letter obtained by Minton, the chief writes, "These accounts were not initiated by Christopher, although they bear his social security number and other personal information." In a brief statement to KTRE's Tashun Chism, Fisher said they were joint accounts and that DPS was now investigating.

One current Crockett city employee wonders why DPS is still involved. "They should have sent this to the Texas Rangers and they didn't. That should have been the first thing they did," the source said. The alleged credit card fraud is just one of many things the source says Fisher has done. He accused him of using city money to purchase a generator and computer for his own home. "No, he's not an upstanding citizen at all," he explained.

Now, Minton wants answers. He feels that if the chief isn't guilty, he needs to show proof. "If his son made the charges, if this truly was a joint account, produce those bills with both names on it. If he really wants to end the controversy and end the questions just produce the bill with both names on it and show that it's a joint account and I'm sure everyone will say ok," Minton said.

Police Chief Being Investigated

KTRE attempted to contact Fisher today, but we were unable to reach him. The mayor and the city administrator declined to comment. According to our sources, DPS is still investigating. KTRE tried to contact DPS in Austin for comment as well but they never returned our phone calls. Stay tuned to KTRE for the latest information on this case.

What a big surprise about Fisher. That man is a crooked as the day is long. He is never out patroling or doing his civic duty. He is usually at the Early Childhood Center where his wife if principal. What are we paying him for?

You might be wrong, bud. Chief Jimmy was indicted yesterday. Turned himself into the Houston County S.O. today.

Ricky Minton, we need you back in Crockett! Our officials are just as crooked as they've ever been. Your old friend, "Hollywood," missies you.

Ooops, I mean "misses" you.

Ricky Minton, your old Houston County on the Web is sorely needed in this neck of the woods. Maybe you can write a guest column for the Courier. You are a talented investigator and have a lot of guts. Please don't let that talent go to waste. Hope everything is going well with you.

For all of you who are speaking about Ricky Minton perhaps you all should go back a reread the first posting. The guys name is Randy Minton. Now as for "FRIEND" you may have 2 children in the ECC but its obvious that you don't spend alot of time up there. I was up at that school almost every day for at least 4 to 5 hours. And Fisher was almost always there. To know that he's there all you have to look for is his yellow Jeep. And who said anything negative about DR Fisher?? And what's your point saying that you father was in office for years and has an outstanding reputation? What are you trying to prove? As for Fisher himself its been a long time coming!!

Well I have taken 30 hours of criminal justice classes from him so unless SFA makes false certificates he has one...along with a masters.

So if you really knew his schedule...he is not at the school teaching all day...might need to check with the school to see what the hours are for the criminal justice classes...

Maybe you need to do a little research on things!!! Have you ever heard of typo's...because his name is Ricky Minton and he is from Crockett and he is a know shit starter!!!!!! He has been trying to get someone out of office since he graduated high school regardless if it was a city police, a sherriff deputy or even as far as a DPS officer...he thinks he knows the law just because he was a jailer. Truth is...he does not know shit!
