Whatever!$60.00?! Really? So what--he paid it back. Heck, look at these other employees in other towns who "actually" embezzle! Thousands of dollars stolen and not paid back (a slap on the wrist apparently suffices). It's NOT like he took a LARGE amount of money! Shaloa is a good man. I have known him for 20 years, beginning when he was a cop in Van Buren, and he has ALWAYS been STRAIGHT UP! So, IF you don't TRULY know him, then DON'T knock him!!! Sallisaw is losing out on this one; WORST mistake they EVER made---or WILL make!

I think what he was wrong and h should have left months ago. I have seen him go into the store at Cherokee and hwy 17 help his self to anything he wanted and go behind the counter and then leave paying for nothing. To me that is not right either if anyone else did that they would be in a lot of trouble

Last two chiefs have not been worth a damn. Time t o appoint a chief that qualifies. A police chief does not need to be a political position. Otherwise you get idiots. Hell just look at our state rep it is a political position and we got an idiot just like all politicians.

shaloa needed to go... piss poor chief..no telling what all went on in that place while he was in charge. the girls will not testify because of all the problems that will follow them. all charges will be dropped on all the cops because no one will go to court,and we will be right back where we started crooked cops running the town,, same ole same ole.....

He was a piss poor chief. Franklin was piss poor officer as well. Both earned a salary they didn't deserve and franklin even earned money serving papers while on city time. Franklin covered up a lot for chief as well

So you saw him behind the counter all the way from South Carolina? Wow. How do you know he didn't pay? Do you know if he had an account there? Rumors rumors, this is how they get started.

I got to see the pic. It was a young lady. I was told by the carpet color and walls it was in Edwards office. She had a tank top which showed her bare mid section. She was holding a cop rifle and wearing a cop hat like those the cops wear in dress uniforms.

That is pretty ballsy of the former chief. Not such a good thing for someone who is supposed to be a role model. I also seen where he said in paper where he had several pictures of kids holding the rifle. Some role model. Don't think I want my kids looking up to him

In reply to *Who Is Cheif* the acting Cheif is Bo Gabbert. It was in the Sequoyah Count Times not to long after sticky fingers Shaloa announced his "retirement". The timing of his "retirement" was quite a coincidence wasn't it?
