Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The SBI has finished its investigation into the Wilmington Police Department and the way officers handled of a botched prostitution sting last year.

The results are now being reviewed by the Attorney General’s special prosecutors, a spokeswoman for the AG’s office says.

District Attorney Ben David and Police Chief Ralph Evangelous asked for the probe in March after WWAY helped uncover details of the sting that Evangelous admitted officers covered up for months.

WPD disciplined at least three officers believed to be involved in the incident. Two of the men eventually quit.

Belville commissioner resigns

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013


BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — For the second time in a year, the Town of Belville has an opening on its governing body.

James Sheehan resigned from the town’s Board of Commissioners last night.

“Due to family issues, I am unable to fulfill my duties as Commissioner,” Sheehan wrote in his resignation letter. “I hereby tender my resignation effective immediately.”

Commissioners appointed Sheehan in August 2012 to finish out the term of a seat left empty when Jack Batson quit as mayor and was succeeded by Commissioner Mike Allen.

Sheehan’s replacement will finish the final four months of his term.

Friday Sheehan filed paperwork to run for one of the two seats open on the commission in November. There are now only two candidates running for those seats.

Sheehan did not immediately return a call for comment.
