PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Jackson County Chief Deputy Randy Sanders has resigned under circumstances Sheriff Mike Ezell described as “a personnel matter.”

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29ty2JN) Sanders turned in his resignation Friday.

It’s unclear if the resignation involves Sanders’ continued employment with the county-owned Singing River Health System or the rarity of a county sheriff’s office in Mississippi having more than one chief deputy, or another matter.

Ezell said the resignation was something they both felt was the best thing to do.

Sanders was the second chief deputy Ezell hired after he became sheriff Dec. 1, 2014.

John Ledbetter has been serving as a chief deputy since Dec. 12, 2014.

Ezell hired Sanders as a chief deputy Jan. 21 during a reorganization of his office.
