Officer Sallica Wilson Fired After Taking Money from Department

Bishopville Police Chief John Ewing says one of his officers has been fired after being accused of taking money from his department.

Sallica Wilson has been arrested and charged with misconduct in office.

Ewing says that between September 11 and September 21, his department noticed that about $100 in cash was missing from the records money.

Officers says audio and videotapes helped them in their investigation.

"I want the citizens of the City of Bishopville to know that I hold our officers to a higher standard then everyone else," Ewing said in a written statement. "If we do wrong, then we should be held accountable just like everyone else. Just because we wear a badge does not mean we should be treated differently as it pertains to the law."

Wilson was an eight-year veteran of the force. She held the rank of sergeant.
