Mount Gilead Police Chief Ralph Vieux has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation. Town Manager Katrina Tatum told the Montgomery Herald Kenyetta Gadson has been named interim Chief of Police in Mount Gilead.

In a story published Apr. 10 on its website, the newspaper related details it cited as the focus of the town’s investigation. WMTG has not received independent confirmation of those details and will refrain from reporting on them until they can be verified.

Mount Gilead Town Commissioners will have their regular monthly meeting Tue., Apr. 14, at 7 p.m. at the town fire station. Commissioners are expected to discuss the issue that night in a closed session.
