It was less than three months ago that we last told you about Eunice, New Mexico Chief Ron Grogan. Grogan had his paramedic license suspended after allegations he fondled a woman in the back of an ambulance.  Grogan got to keep his job, but now he is back in the news.


The chief and four of his firefighters are accused of stealing a radar detector from a crime scene. They face charges that include burglary, tampering with evidence, and attempting to tamper with evidence.

Last time around there were accusations then that the chief was able to keep his job because he is related by marriage to the mayor of Eunice.

Now, the same city manager who made it clear in September it was his decision not to fire Chief Grogan and not the mayor’s  says the chief’s future “is not very promising”.
