The Kendleton fire chief has been arrested and thrown in jail. Investigators say acting fire Chief Daniel Conner was arrested Friday morning at his home. The Ft. Bend Narcotics Unit served a search warrant, the culmination of a several-month investigation.

Inside the home, sheriff's deputies and Drug Enforcement Agents found what they believe is a significant amount of crack and marijuana.

"Upon entry, they were able to find less than 20 grams, but more than four grams of crack cocaine, as well as a quantity of marijuana which was less than five pounds, but more than four ounces," said Craig Brady with the Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators also found weighing scales and packing materials inside the home. They believe Conner was selling the drugs out of his house.

Conner is currently in the Ft. Bend County Jail, held without bond. He refused our request to peak with him there to get his side of the story.

Tonight on Eyewitness News at 10pm, hear why investigators say it's significant that Conner would regularly park his chief's vehicle in front of his home.
