SBI investigating BSL police chief
BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) — The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into allegations against Boiling Spring Lakes Police Chief Emmett Ballree.
SBI spokeswoman Noelle Talley confirmed the investigation, which she said was request by a Superior Court judge and the District Attorney. Talley did not comment on the nature of the investigation and allegations.
When we called for comment, a woman who answered the phone at the BSL Police Department said Ballree is out today.
This is not the first time Ballree has been investigated. In 2008, a Training and Standards committee cleared Ballree after he was accused of misusing a town credit card to buy fuel for his personal car when he was police chief in Mount Olive.
