Video: Mathiston Police Chief Resigns

MATHISTON, Miss. (WCBI) – Mathiston Police Chief Shane Box is resigning from his post.

Mayor Jimmy Carden confirmed to WCBI Wednesday morning that aldermen are expected to accept Box’s resignation at their meeting Tuesday night.

In April, WCBI reported that Box had been suspended and town leaders had taken away all of his city-issued equipment.

Though the mayor confirmed the suspension, he would not elaborate on why they took the action.

It has been widely speculated that Box was involved in unauthorized use of department equipment. The mayor has not confirmed those allegations.

Mathiston voters will elect a new chief in a special election on July 12th.
