EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- The police chief of East St. Louis has resigned after just a few months on the job.
Ranadore Foggs is a retired Illinois State Police captain who took over the department in late May after a retirement.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/rka6Ql ) that Foggs said he had philosophical differences with the mayor about how the police department should be run. He didn't elaborate.
Mayor Alvin Parks Jr. says he's sorry to Foggs go and accepts the resignation.
Foggs began his law enforcement career in 1981 and retired from the state police in 2009.
City officials say a replacement should be named soon.
