Drug detective resigns amid investigation

March 16, 2010

Mooresville Police Sgt. Tom Whitley has resigned from the force amid accusations that he forged portions of at least 14 narcotics-investigation reports he turned in last November. Whitley allegedly claimed he did field tests on suspects for drugs, mostly meth, and all came up positive. Police say Whitley did not actually perform the tests. A special prosecutor has been appointed to review the evidence and make possible criminal charges. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
