PINCKNEY, MI. (WLNS) – First he up and quit.
Then a well-known police sergeant from the Pinckney Police Department suddenly left town.
Now we know why.
He’s charged with stealing $20,000 from his mother.
Police in Tennessee found and arrested Bill Cook last week.
He’s charged with embezzling from a vulnerable adult.
Our media partners at WHMI report Cook has waived extradition and is expected to be back in Livingston County this week to face charges.
Cook was a longtime sergeant with the Pinckney Police Department and resigned via email last year unexpectedly.
