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."
