William Jason Kelcy
33 / 259

The former police chief of Rising Star was indicted during early 2014 on theft charges. William Jason Kelcy, 41, was indicted by a federal grand jury for theft of government property and theft of a machine gun. The two-count indictment alleged Kelcy, while police chief, obtained more than $4-million dollars worth of items from a Department of Defense program aimed at equipping local agencies.  He then gave, sold, or bartered some of those items to other agencies, private citizens, or pawn shops. If convicted, each count carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a big fine.
