BURGAW, N.C. (AP) - The town manager in Burgaw north of Wilmington has announced some changes in the police department.

Local media outlets report that Town Manager Chad McEwen says that Chief Montrina Sutton has been suspended for two weeks because of an undisclosed violation of town personnel policy.

McEwen also says two positions on the town police force - a major and a captain - are being eliminated.

The town manager says there’s too much focus in the department on administrative positions rather than patrol positions.
