Sullivan City officials are staying tight-lipped about the recent firing of their Police Chief Jose Anaya.

Action 4 News has learned that the city has reached out to the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office to conduct a criminal investigation involving him.

But city officials wouldn't go into details about why they requested the investigation.

The officials referred Action 4 news to their attorney but he did not return a phone call.

Anaya took over following the arrest of former Sullivan City Police Chief Hernan Guerra.

A federal judge sentenced Guerra to 10 years in prison for his role in a drug trafficking case.
