BEND, Ore. (AP) - Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton has announced his retirement.

The 58-year-old Blanton told The Bulletin newspaper (https://is.gd/dQ5Yhh ) it’s time do something else after holding the job for seven years.

Blanton’s last day is June 30, so he’s leaving office about a year and a half before the end of his term in November 2016.

The sheriff told Deschutes County Administrator Tom Anderson and the county commissioners of his decision last week and that he believes Capt. Shane Nelson should be appointed to complete the rest of the term.
