MOUNT CARMEL — A lieutenant with the Mount Carmel Police Department has been terminated from the force, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has confirmed he is included in an investigation the agency is currently conducting.

Due to the continuing case, TBI spokesperson Kristin Helm declined to comment on the allegations against Chris Jones, how they were brought forward or when the investigation began.

It marks the second time in less than five years that Jones has been involved in a TBI investigation. No criminal action came out of the previous probe, though it did prompt his removal from Tennessee’s Meth Task Force.
