Turner sheriff steps down

Posted: Updated:

Turner County Sheriff Roy Wiley has resigned, and is charged with a crime.

As WALB News 10 told you 10 days ago, Wiley was investigated for removing marijuana from his office's evidence locker.

Sources told us Wiley gave the marijuana to a cancer patient.

Now he's charged with possession of marijuana.

The coroner, Edgar Perry, is the acting sheriff of Turner County.

A probate judge will select an interim sheriff in a few days until a special election can be held.
