After former Inter-Canyon fire chief David MacBean was sentenced to eight years in prison for theft, current chief Randy Simpson said he and the department had been waiting a long time for the day of reckoning.
“It feels like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders,” Simpson said outside the courtroom Friday evening. “This has been 19 months of hard work. I never expected to be in this position.”
Simpson became volunteer chief in April after MacBean’s theft of more than $647,000 from the department surfaced in March 2013.
