Former SC police chief says town owes him money

NORWAY, S.C. (AP) - A police chief dumped by a small South Carolina town says he and two officers are owed back pay and want their money.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reported Sunday that former Police Chief Sean Hamilton has hired a lawyer to help him pursue what he says the town of Norway owes him.

Norway's town council dissolved the two-man police force in August, citing the town's financial troubles.

Hamilton says the town hasn't paid him his last paycheck and also owes him for unused vacation time. Hamilton says 2 of his former officers also haven't been paid for unused vacation.
