No Announcement Yet on Police Chief

Meridian, Miss. Meridian's mayor says he will wait another two weeks before making a final decision on who the next police chief will be.

Mayor Percy Bland said Monday he will not present a nomination for chief to the city council at Tuesday's meeting as he had originally planned.

Bland says he will do that at the council's next meeting June 3.

The mayor has been searching for a chief since he fired James Lee earlier this month.

Buck Roberts, an assistant chief, is currently filling the role of interim chief.
