Local Firefighter Arrested
We are deeply saddened to announce that one of our employees was arrested on December 3, 2008 by officers of the Citrus Heights Police Department. The person arrested is a 30 year veteran of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. He holds the rank of Captain, and he was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the police investigation. He has subsequently retired. The charges are very serious, and we are committed to fully cooperate with the Citrus Heights Police Department as they investigate this matter. Because this is a personnel matter, the District will not be able to release any further information. As far as any details of the investigation are concerned, we direct your inquires to the Citrus Heights Police Department. The men and women of our department are committed to serve and protect the citizens of our community. If these charges prove to be true, the actions of this individual in no way represent the character and dedication of the men and women of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.
