Former Denison, Iowa Fire Chief Faces Charges

Denison, IOWA — On Wednesday, December 21, 2011, a complaint was filed in Crawford County charging Michael McKinnon with Theft in the First Degree, a Class C Felony; and Felonious Misconduct in Office, a Class D Felony.  McKinnon, 41, is a former Chief of the Denison Fire Department.

The criminal charges are the result of a lengthy investigation conducted by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the State Auditor’s Office.  McKinnon is scheduled for an initial appearance on Friday, December 30, 2011 in Crawford County.  The Iowa Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting the case.

Criminal Complaint 

McKinnon served as Chief of the Denison Fire Department from January 18, 1999 to January 3, 2010.  McKinnon left his employment as fire chief amidst questionable purchases made by him and questionable payments made to him for training and equipment.  It was then that the DCI was contacted to conduct an investigation. McKinnon currently resides in the state of New Mexico.

A criminal allegation is merely an accusation and any suspect is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
