Omaha Fire Department to wait on future of captain

Oct 29, 2013

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha Fire Department says it will wait before making a decision on the future of a captain accused of having marijuana, alcohol and a handgun during a traffic stop.

The department says in a statement Monday it's disappointed in the alleged crimes of 41-year-old Frank J. Guido, of Bellevue, but it will wait for the judicial system to go through its due process before commenting or making any decision on his status.

Guido is accused of having a small amount of marijuana, an open container of alcohol and a handgun that he didn't quickly disclose when he was stopped on Aug. 30. The department says Guido told fire management about the incident immediately after it happened.

Guido faces two misdemeanors and he was ticketed. He has pleaded not guilty.
