FORMER HARRIS COUNTY DEPUTY CONSTABLE ARRESTED!

SHERIFF THOMAS STILL OUT BUSTING THE ALLEGED BAD GUYS!

35 year old Minh Vu was booked into Harris County jail last week for impersonating an officer. Vu, who was a deputy constable for Precinct 6 in 1997, hasn’t been a certified officer with the state of Texas since then. But Harris County investigators say Vu was passing himself off as active and certified to allegedly fatten his pockets. How? The sheriff’s department says Vu was using his phony status to work extra duty jobs as security at local stores. If he worked as a private security officer he could make around $10 a hour but if he was still certified he could command as much as $20 to $30 a hour. And that’s exactly wat investigators say his scheme was. Vu first came to the attention of investigators by Harris County Sheriff Tommy Thomas. The Insite was told the Sheriff spotted Vu driving a white Crown Victoria that appeared to be an official police unit but really wasn’t. Sheriff Thomas asked his staff to investigate Vu and he was arrested a week later. Vu spoke with The Insite on Monday and denies the allegations. He says he acted as a coordinator of extra duty jobs for his cop friends but he never actually worked. Investigators also say they found several police uniforms in Vu’s possession!
