Mayor: Chadbourn police chief resigns

CHADBOURN, NC (WECT) - Chadbourn Police Chief Harry White resigned on Monday, according to Mayor Phillip Britt.

Britt said that White did not cite a reason for his resignation, but gave his three weeks notice.

"When you have a small department, you have a chance for advancement," Britt said. "You don't want to fault anyone for bettering themselves."

Britt said that an interim chief had not yet been selected.

White was hired last August. The town has been through multiple chiefs and interim chiefs in the last two years.
