COCHRAN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Cochran Police have concluded their investigation into the city’s fire chief, Kevin Noles, with no action taken against him.

According to Police Chief Christopher Coley, they received a complaint against Noles from a male employee at the fire department who claimed he’d made terroristic threats toward him.

Coley says there wasn’t enough evidence to support the allegations after consulting with Oconee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Tim Vaughn.

“The information that we were able to gather did not meet the statutory requirements of the terroristic threats and acts state law and there was no criminal violation committed,” Coley told 41NBC.

The investigation officially ended on Thursday. We reached out to City Manager Richard Newbern for comment on the matter but have yet to hear back.
