Texas Rangers assisting investigation into Comanche Chamber of Commerce

COMANCHE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - A criminal investigation is underway into the Comanche Chamber of Commerce due to misappropriation of funds. 

The Comanche Police Department began the investigation last week after receiving information that an employee of the Chamber may be involved in criminal activity.

During the initial investigation, a press release states police found that "there were misappropriations of funds from bank accounts owned by the Chamber of Commerce."

The Texas Rangers and the Comanche County District Attorney's Office are now assisting in a criminal investigation into the Chamber of Commerce. 

The City of Comanche is "committed to a thorough investigation" into these allegations, and during a Special Called City Council Meeting Tuesday, council members decided to have a resolution drafted regarding the distribution of the Hotel/Motel taxes for qualifying projects and also terminated the Chamber's long-term office lease and ordered the Chamber to comply with an audit of the Hotel/Motel tax account. 

The Chamber is still operating and is allowed to remain in their current location on a month-to-month basis.
