Prosperity, SC

A South Carolina police chief has resigned as state agents investigate his department.

Acting Prosperity Police Chief Benji Sease told WIS-TV that Craig Nelson stepped down from his position with the Newberry County town last week.

Sease says the State Law Enforcement Division is investigating missing money from a police evidence locker.

It isn't the first time SLED has investigated Nelson. State agents checked reports last year that Nelson ran over his ex-mother-in-law's foot.
