KIMBALL, Neb. (AP) - Kimball officials say a captain on the force will replace the police chief who resigned after being placed on leave.

Chief Darren Huff resigned last week, little more than two weeks after Mayor Keith Prunty put him on leave Sept. 19. Prunty and City Administrator Daniel Ortiz have declined to say what led to the action against Huff.

Scottsbluff radio station KNEB reports (https://bit.ly/2e32Gfp ) that Huff’s temporary replacement is Capt. Andy Bremer, who also is the department’s K-9 handler.

Huff was formally appointed chief in April 2014, taking over for Mark Simpson, who resigned.
