It has been confirmed by multiple sources that despite town mismanager Alex Taft's efforts at obstructing justice and delaying a proper criminal investigation (as per official town policy) DPS has assigned an investigator to the look into alleged criminal conduct of Quartzsite's Police Chief.
DPS has a separate "major crimes division", and is considered by everyone but town "leaders" to be the proper authority to investigate other law enforcement entities.
If evidence of a crime is found, DPS has the ability to bring those findings to the FBI or STate Attorney General for prosecution.
As word spread around town today, concerned citizens wanted to know if they could take up a collection to rent the chief and his wife a moving van. But as one critic pointed out, "He wont have to pack, because where Gilbert's probably going, they'll issue him everything he needs!"
