SBI investigating former Warrenton police chief
Posted December 16, 2011
Warrenton, N.C. — State agents are investigating former Warrenton Police Chief John Younts, who was fired in October, officials said Friday.
Mayor Walter Gardner said town officials requested an audit of the police department's financial records during Younts' tenure and found "inconsistencies in police department purchases." He declined to elaborate.
The case has been turned over to the State Bureau of Investigation, Gardner said.
Younts had been Warrenton's police chief since spring 2007.
