Former Fire Chief Arrested

A former fire chief in Kemper County is facing charges. Kemper County authorities are charging Shannon Salter with two counts of burglary. Both crimes occurred at the same house in the Damascus Community earlier this month. Salter's total bond for the two charges has been set at $50,000. Previously, he was found guilty in an arson case which occurred four years ago. At that time Salter was the fire chief for the Damascus and District 3 Volunteer Fire Departments.
