Sheriff eyes allegation of ‘malfeasance’ in Bay

Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam on Monday confirmed that his office is “looking into” allegations of possible criminal actions by members of the city of Bay St. Louis administration.

“We have been made aware of some things and we have been asked to take a look at it,” Adam said. “We have an obligation to the citizens of Hancock County and Bay St. Louis to investigate any complaint. We are just starting to look into this, so we do not have any additional information to offer at this time.”

“That’s a complete surprise to me,” Bay Mayor Les Fillingame said Tuesday, adding that no sheriff’s department personnel had yet contacted him in the matter.
