LYMAN, S.C. (AP) - The police chief in Lyman has resigned his position amid an FBI and State Law Enforcement Division investigation into town activities.

Lyman Councilwoman Teresa Shuler says Terry Richards submitted a resignation letter at 9:45 a.m. Friday.

Shuler says Richards resigned for undisclosed personal reasons. In a statement, Richards said he wanted to step aside and focus on his family and health.

Shuler said Richards’ resignation was not related to the investigation. Several other town officials have left recently.
