EUPORA, Miss. (WTVA) - The new sheriff of Webster County is now on the job.
David Gore was sworn in on Monday to lead the sheriff’s office.
He has 35 years of experience in law enforcement working for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.
The Webster County native won 63 percent of the vote in November’s general election to win the job.
He follows former sheriff, Tim Mitchell, who was arrested and later pleaded guilty to embezzlement and trafficking in stolen firearms.
Andy McCants has led the sheriff's department since Mitchell's arrest in December 2018.
