WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputy has quit in the midst of an Internal Affairs investigation.

The Sheriff’s Office says Lt. Jerry Easley, 42, resigned August 24 during an investigation into an administrative matter. Easley began working as a deputy with NHSO on April 25, 1995. He was promoted to the rank of lieutenant this past February and was assigned as a Watch Commander in the Detention Division.

Citing state personnel laws, the Sheriff’s Office says it cannot release any more information about Easley’s employment or the nature of the investigation. A statement from the Sheriff’s Office says Sheriff Ed McMahon “continues to maintain a high standard of conduct for every deputy and assures the citizens that every complaint is thoroughly investigated.”
