Former Hammondville police chief charged with insurance fraud

Authorities have accused a former Hammondville police chief of burning down his home for insurance money.

They have charged Tom Fuller and 47-year-old Glenn Fuller with insurance fraud.

The sheriff says items that Tom Fuller claimed he lost in the fire have turned up at his new home in Macon County.

The home burned down in October while Tom Fuller still had the chief’s job.

The sheriff also says a K-9 investigator hit on several areas for possible accelerants, and tests confirmed those.

WAFF-TV reports both men have made bond following arrest.
