Release of Sheriff’s texts being investigated by SLED


The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the release of Lauren’s County Sheriff Ricky Chastain’s text messages.

Their investigation began after Greenwood Police Department took a police report that the release of the text messages was criminal in nature.

Greenwood Police would not release the incident report, claiming it was protected under the SLED investigation.

SLED would not comment on what the content of the text messages contained.

The Index-Journal in Greenwood reported on rumored explicit text messages between the Sheriff and an unidentified woman. To read their reporting, click here.
