POTTSBORO, TX -- Another police chief in Grayson County has turned in his badge and gun, after several years leading a small town police force.

Pottsboro Police Chief Brett Arterburn has resigned after nearly seven years on the job. Arterburn turned in his letter on Monday in order to pursue a job in the "private sector," Mayor Frank Budra said.

"It's a big loss for the city," says Budra. "Chief Arterburn was a very good police officer. I've known him for many years, and he was a great chief. He has made a lot of improvements for the city."

While in office, Arterburn helped work on a program called Less Tears More Years after two teenage girls died in car wrecks. Lt. David Brown will be in charge of the other four patrol officers during the search for a new chief, city manager Kevin Farley said
