GONZALES, Louisiana — The assistant fire chief of a volunteer fire department in Darrow turned himself after Gonzales police discovered he allegedly had been using an Ascension Parish government fuel card to fill up his pickup since March.
Detective Sgt. Steven Nethken tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/ZC3zjD ) police arrested 30-year-old Tarrell Markeith Milan, of Darrow, Monday on 14 counts of unauthorized use of an access card and one count of felony theft in excess of $750.
Nethken says Fifth Ward Fire Chief Peter Roblin discovered unusually high fuel purchases in weekly fuel card reports for Milan and reported the problem to police Sept. 22.
Police say Milan, who has been a volunteer for nearly a decade, had charged $807.44 on the fuel card since March.
