Police Department investigation continues in Wrightsville Beach
WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — The Town of Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen held a town meeting Thursday night looking for some answers on a police department investigation. The board also discussed the future of Crystal Pier. But answers were hard to come by.
The town has three of its police officers on administrative leave, and the investigation is ongoing
Mayor David Cignotti says he cannot comment on the investigation.” Currently the chief of police has been working with the town manager and our town attorney, so we will release information as soon as we can.”
Police Chief House believes the investigation is nearing a conclusion and also says there is no comment until then.
There was interest in what the town will do about the damaged Crystal Pier, but that too will have to wait.
Mayor Cignotti explains. “That will be a public hearing that has been postponed so we will probably discuss that at the April twelfth meeting.”
The Mayor said another issue; a smoking ban on the beach will be heard at a March public meeting.
While many issues were down streamed, the board of aldermen announced a surf contest and beach cleanup in March and surfers healing autism event in April.
