Perryville Aldermen Accepts Chief's Resignation
PERRYVILLE, Mo. - Perryville Police Chief Keith Tarrillion's resignation is now official.
The Southeast Missourian reports that aldermen on Tuesday unanimously accepted Tarrillion's resignation, ending his 20-year career with the department. He had been chief since 2002.
Tarrillion submitted is resignation last week amid allegations that he falsified a police report in a personal insurance claim two years ago. City officials alleged that he used another officer's name to create a police report about vandalism at his home and that he later received nearly $5,700 from his insurance company.
Tarrillion has denied wrongdoing.
