Friday Jun 08, 2018 4:28am
Allen County, IN

Thursday morning, Indiana State Police Detective Clint Hetrick arrested 53 year old Daniel A. Newport of Fort Wayne on a Level 6 Felony charge of theft following an investigation he had been conducting since December of 2017.

According to Hetrick, in late December of 2017 he was assigned to investigate an allegation that Newport, who was serving as the Treasurer for the charitable organization known as Guns-N-Hoses, had taken large sums of money from the organization for personal use.

During the course of the investigation, Hetrick found that Newport, who was a member of the Fort Wayne Fire Department at the time, had taken upwards of $50,000.00 from the organization between 2000 and December 2017.

As a result of Hetrick’s investigation, and working in cooperation with the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office, an arrest warrant was issued for Newport on June 6, 2018. Newport was incarcerated in the Allen County Jail and has since been released.
