The city of Elkton is looking for another police chief. Elkton Mayor Carolyn Thompson said at the meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen that Patrolman Ike Braden will serve as acting police chief.

The announcement comes after the dismissal of T.C. Combs earlier this month. 

According to media reports, following the Sept. 13 board meeting, the Mayor said Combs had left city employment Sept. 2, approximately 60 days into his 90-day probationary period.

Thompson said “His services were no longer needed,” and she did not comment further.

Combs was retired from the Ardmore Police Department and had done other security work.
