ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) - After nominating Sheriff Earl Storms for the position we tried to catch up with Commissioner Delilah Blanks to ask her about her decision. Blanks says she hasn't spoken with Storms since nominating him for the position.
Blanks, the mother-in-law of Prentis Benston, says she doesn't believe Storms fired five Bladen County deputies so Benston could be promoted to Chief Deputy. Blanks would not say much more.
We invite Commissioner Blanks to sit down with us to have a serious conversation about the ongoing situation with the Bladen County Sheriff's Office.
