Town commissioner facing computer charge

CANDOR (AP) — A Candor town commissioner has been charged with accessing a government computer.
The State Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday that Wayne Holyfield had been arrested. He was released from jail on a $3,000 bond.
Authorities would not give details about their investigation or the charge against Holyfield, who has a fulltime job as a North Carolina State Highway Patrolman.
For weeks, Holyfield has been on leave from that post pending a Patrol investigation, but authorities haven’t released details on that inquiry either.
Holyfield was first elected as commissioner in November. Late last year, he led the charge to fire four of the town’s five police officers.
The next meeting of the Candor Board of Commissioners is Monday.
