That leaves Manchester Police Department with three investigators: Bryan Eldridge, Trey Adcock and Brandon Tomberlin.

“I think Jonathan and Jackie have good opportunities and we will miss them,” said MPD Police Chief Mark Yother. “We will post the jobs in house first. We have some good men. It’s sad when someone leaves but it can be exciting to provide other people with opportunities.”
