Wells City Council interviews three for police chief opening

By Morgan Thomas - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – The town of Wells is closer to naming a new police chief. In Monday night's city council meeting three prospective hires were interviewed in a closed session.

The vacancy came in February, when former Chief Barry Starnes was fired for what we're told were behavior issues.

Among the applicants, a current police officer with the City of Alto.

As of news time, no decision regarding the police chief position had been made.
