No charges filed against Davis
September 01, 2010
WARREN — County officials announced earlier this week that former police chief Warren Davis is no longer under investigation.
Grafton County Sherriff Douglas Dutile explained n a press release issued Tuesday that his office recently completed an investigation concerning Davis, which it undertook at the request of Warren's Board of Selectmen, and turned its findings over to the state Attorney General's office for a second opinion.
After reviewing the information, Dutile wrote, the Attorney General's office agreed with his assessment that there was "insufficient evidence to seek a criminal charge."
"Therefore, this matter is closed, and no further action shall be taken," he wrote, adding that "if further pertinent evidence becomes available, we will consider that evidence to determine if criminal charges are warranted."
Davis was suspended from his part-time position as Warren's Chief of Police on July 3, following an emergency selectmen's meeting. Both the board of selectmen and the sheriff's office have been tight-lipped about what prompted his suspension.
Since Davis' dismissal, Select Board Chairman Michael Clark has been serving as Warren's Interim Chief of Police.
