Deputy Fired in Murray County Investigation
Murray County Sheriff Howard Ensley said he has fired the deputy accused of planting drugs on a woman's car. Before she was charged, the woman, Angela Garmley, had filed a complaint against Murray County magistrate judge Bryant Cochran who ultimately resigned from office.

Sheriff Ensley tells NewsChannel 9 he has fired Dep. Josh Greeson (pictured), who arrested Garmley Aug. 14. Ensley said that Greeson's supervisor, Capt. Michael Henderson, remains suspended. The sheriff said according to county personnel policy, he must wait until Friday before he can take action regarding Capt. Henderson. Henderson is the cousin of former magistrate judge Cochran, who was accused by Garmley of sexual improprieties.

Ensley said the district attorney and the GBI determined both officers gave false statements during the investigation. The sheriff said, "This is a sad day."

Cochran resigned following the charges by Garmley that he made sexual overtures to her when she came before him as a defendant. He said however that he only stepped down because of improprieties over pre-signed warrants. Shortly after Garmley filed the charges, she was charged with possession of methamphetamine. Since then the GBI said the drugs were planted and the charges were dismissed.

My next question would be, if the police planted the dope on Ms. Garmley... and I tend to believe that they did, where did the "POLICE" get the dope????

The drugs would have come from the sheriffs dept. from a bust maybe. Just wonder what other elected officials are going to ousted! Seems like the ones that has been there for a while are all turning out to be dirty. Wouldn't surprise me if they got their orders to do so from the sheriff himself!

That's exactly right. I am sure everyone is going to be surprised. That is the reason I believe certain ones are crooked. Very very crooked. One in particular.

Why is it that a small town like Chatsworth can not have a decent law enfoecement agency? I think they all need to be replaced especially the Sheriff! You will never make me believe that Ensley did not know what was going on in his department. Maybe the sheriff should pay more attention to his immediate family. JUST SAYIN!!!

So...When J.Greeson had posession of the drugs and he was riding around and he was holding illegal drugs and was getting ready to plant...
Did he have posession of illegal drugs?...and shouldnt he be charged/convicted of drug charges??

Where did they come from?..Police evidence room?

it is increasing apparent that the corruption runs deep. think about this, the deputies have presiged warrants, they have drugs to plant on people, you have a captain who happens to be cochrans cousin, jerry scott and the gbi needs to file charges and arrest these criminals,it is adding up that the courts, all thelaw enforcement of murray couny should be investigated and mr hogan should suspend any taxpayer money to contimue to support these people when you cut off the money peope will start talking priod

MY question is how many officers/detectives may have done the same thing to how many other people and how long its been going on?

Oh yeah! Ensley will fire everybody in his department to try and make the voters believe that he's a by the book good guy. If it hadn't been made public he wouldn't fire anybody. Just look at eton and what they got by with even AFTER the gbi investigated, not to mention both city clerks going to jail. It all comes down to the ones at the top. Get rid of Ensley, the mayors and city councils of this county and hopefully get some decent people in!

The man in charge needs to be shown the door. If he didnt know about this what else does he "not know".....he knew. Every office in state and federal should be no more than 8 years.
