MIDDLETON, Idaho — Middleton Police Chief Alan Takeuchi resigned Tuesday ahead of Middleton City Council's planned proposal to remove him from office.
City Council planned to remove him through a provision of Idaho Law, but the reasoning for removing him is currently unclear.
Middleton Mayor Steve Rule confirmed to Idaho News 6 that Takeuchi resigned Tuesday.
"I am saddened to receive Chief Takeuchi's resignation yesterday," said Rule.
Takeuchi has led the department since 2017.
Idaho News 6 placed a public records request into the City of Middleton as well as questions about who will lead the department. This is a developing story and will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.
