COFFEE CITY, TX (KLTV) -

Amid an ongoing investigation by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, the chief of the Coffee City Police Department has resigned.

Coffee City Chief Scott Medcalf made the announcement on the police department’s Facebook page on June 22.

“I would like to take this time to thank all of you for your support to the men and women of the Coffee City Police Department over the past 2.5 years,” Medcalf wrote in the Facebook post. “I, Scott Medcalf, have resigned from the department. The last two years have been an incredible and unforgettable experience.”

Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse said Monday that his office received a complaint about Medcalf, and they are investigating it. He added that the sheriff’s office has filed a case with the Henderson County District Attorney’s Office.

When asked what the investigation is about, Hillhouse said it is in connection to a home burglary that occurred within the county.

“To all the members of the ‘Island of Misfit Toys,’ thank you, my brothers and sisters,” Medcalf wrote in the Facebook post. “It has been my honor being your chief. I will miss our memories, our stories, and our experiences together. God bless each of you and God bless to you all.”
