Kemp Police Officer Arrested


Kaufman Texas—On June 30, 2010 at 10:22 pm., Kemp police officer Damon Smith, age 34, of Mabank was arrested and charged with two counts of Abuse of Official Capacity. Allegations against Mr. Smith include stealing property from the Kemp Police Department, where he was employed as a police officer for the last three years and exchanging the property for drugs. Mr. Smith is also accused of providing known drug dealers in the Kaufman County area with “protection” in exchange for methamphetamines that he in turn sold.  Further charges are pending as Kaufman County Narcotics Investigators and the Texas Rangers continue their investigation.

Mr. Smith is being held in the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center, where his bail is pending.
