Laramie, Wy –
Laramie is looking for a new police chief. Roughly a week after police Chief Bob Deutsch saw a libel and slander case against a Laramie citizen dismissed Deutsch and the city of Laramie have parted company. Deutsch would not say whether he resigned or was fired and city of Laramie spokesman Jon Holmes was equally tight lipped. Deutsch was accused by Laramie resident Tim Hale of misusing petty cash funds but last week City Manager Janine Jordan said that she did not think there was any embezzlement. Jordan has named veteran police commander Dale Stalder to serve as interim police chief. Stalder has been with the department for 29 years.
