We wanted to know how you feel about the resignation of Clarksburg Police Chief Marshall Goff and Lieutenant Tim Smith.

People we spoke with on Tuesday, appeared to be disappointed with the whole situation.

They said residents should be able to trust local law enforcement officials, but Tuesday's news didn't surprise them. "It doesn't surprise me a bit because I've seen plenty of wrong actions by our county politicians, government and local law enforcement," said Harrison County resident, Jenni Greer.

John Turnbull, who also lives in Harrison County said, "I don't think people in those positions are necessarily completely trustworthy. I think there are checks and balances along the way that kind of keep everybody accountable."

Others said they don't believe these actions are representative of all law enforcement officials.

Investigators said they are making efforts to eliminate corruption. U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld said, "Our efforts in rooting out public corruption are working. We thank the public for letting us know about this incident. The public came forward to us and told us about this."

According to federal investigators, Goff and Smith said they will be cooperative and truthful moving forward.
