Virginia Town Loses Only Police Officer
October 07, 2010
BROOKNEAL, Va. (AP) – Brookneal has lost its only police officer.
Officer Scott Earhart submitted his resignation this week. He told The News & Advance that he’s leaving to take another law enforcement position.
Earhart’s resignation is effective Oct. 15. He had been Brookneal’s only officer since April, when the acting police chief resigned after being charged with grand larceny. The town’s police chief resigned in January after he was charged with petit larceny.
Council member Kenneth Jennings says the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office is helping the town.
The town of 1,200 residents is continuing a search for new officers and police chief.
