ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A Clyde Police Officer has resigned after being put under investigation for allegations involving his ‘military service’.
According to the Clyde PD Leroy Foley resigned his position voluntarily.
“The Clyde Police Department will continue our internal review of this matter in order to reach a conclusion and determine if any additional actions are warranted,” said Chief Robert Dalton. “We have consulted with the Callahan County District Attorney’s office to update them on this incident, and may call on additional assistance from outside agencies as needed.”
Foley is also running for Callahan County Sheriff against the current sheriff’s deputy Ricky Jowers.
