SOUTHPORT, N.C. (WSET) -- An entire police department in North Carolina was put on leave after the department's chief and lieutenant were arrested.

WECT reported that the Southport Police Department's police chief and lieutenant were arrested for allegedly moonlighting as truck drivers while on the clock.

All police operations in the city were suspended after the arrests.

The whole police force is on paid administrative leave.

The District Attorney said Smith and Simmons drove overnight shifts for a trucking company while on the clock.

Allegations show the trucking jobs took them out of the city and county while they were supposed to be on patrol in Southport.

The mayor and city’s board of alderman request the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office to lead law enforcement in Southport until further notice. »
