Flandreau Police Chief And Sergeant Resign

Flandreau, SD

An investigation into missing evidence has led to the resignation of two of Flandreau's finest, but the city's attorney says the men aren't accused of taking anything illegally.

The City of Flandreau's police force is two men short after a missing evidence investigation.

It started in January when important evidence wasn't found inside the downtown police station, according to Moody County State's Attorney Paul Lewis.

Police Chief Michael Eisenbarth and Sergeant Jesse Doyle reported missing evidence, but Lewis says the men are not believed to have taken anything from the evidence room.

Many people who did not want to go on camera expressed concerns about possible misconduct inside the Flandreau Police Department. However, others in town say they support the men who stepped down.

"They are good people and I don't believe there was any wrong doing or anything like that. I don't know a whole lot about it but I know some of their families and they're real good quality people," Mike Larson said.

When the investigation is complete by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, it will be turned over to the Moody County State's Attorney for any possible charges.

No arrests have been made.
