Caledonia, Miss. (WTVA) - Residents reacted to the announcement of one less law enforcement officer after the board of aldermen accepted deputy town marshal Lance Luckey’s resignation at Thursday’s special called meeting.
Alderman Bill Darnell said the meeting was mainly called to accept bids for a soccer field project, but he was shocked to learn Luckey resigned from his position.
He said “there were some things in the past”, but Luckey was a good officer.
Residents said they hated to see a marshal leave.
Joey Pounders said he knows Luckey personally. When you look at someone with integrity you think this situation has to be a misunderstanding, he said.
Danny Woodcock said Luckey was an excellent marshal and his leave is a loss to the town.
Luckey served as a marshal for many years. The reason for his resignation is unknown.
WTVA reached out to Mayor Mitch Wiggins and he said he can’t comment on the resignation any further.
