KATY, Texas – Katy Fire Chief Marc Jordan has been indicted for allegedly stealing drugs from a Katy Fire Department ambulance.

He gave the generic version of valium, called Diazapam, to a woman named Angela Jordan, according to the indictment. It’s not clear if she is related to the chief.

According to court documents, Jordan claimed he dropped a box of Diazapam and a few of the cartridges broke. He said he threw them away, but authorities don’t believe him.

Jordan is charged with diversion of a controlled substance and tampering with a government document, both felonies.

Jordan has served Katy since 1972 and has been fire chief for 11 years.

He was recently featured in Katy Magazine where he said he considers the fire station his second home and called his job his passion.

Friends were stunned by the allegations.

‘I question the report, first, because I consider Marc to be a man with credibility," said Mac McDaniel. "Always cordial, reserved, steady."

Jordan was released on a $5,000 bond.
