BEND, OR -- A Deschutes County Grand Jury has charged former Baker Rural Fire Protection District Chief Dan Weitz with the crimes of theft by deception and official misconduct in the first degree.

 

Weitz allegedly represented to the Bend Fire Department that he was purchasing an item from them for Baker Rural Fire's use, when instead, he wanted to purchase it personally.
 
The item purchased was a self-contained breathing apparatus compressor that was discounted to Weitz by $4,000, due to Bend Fire's understanding that it was going to another fire department instead of an individual.
 
Weitz's first court hearing is scheduled for January 11 at 9am.
