The Shinnston Police Chief has been fired immediately, according to a press release from the City of Shinnston.
In the release, City Manager Debra Herndon said Michael Secreto, who had been with the department for almost 20 years, had been let go. He had been chief of the department since 2001.
There were no details provided about why. Herndon wrote, "No further comment can be made regarding the nature of the information received as disclosure could jeopardize an ongoing investigation."
Secreto was put on leave last Thursday after information was received and council was informed of this information Tuesday night.
Lieutenant Jason Carlson was named Acting Chief of Police for an undetermined period.
