North Topsail Police Chief Arrested

By Catherine M. Welch

Wilmington, NC – North Topsail Police Chief Daniel Salese has been arrested.

The North Carolina Attorney General's Office says the State Buerau of Investigation arrested Salese Thursday on one count of misdemeanor larceny and one county of misdemeanor obstruction of justice.

In a released statement, the Attorney General's office says the Onslow County District Attorney's Office requested an investigation into the possible theft of $200 of town funds, and the arrest is the result of that investigation.

Salese was released Thursday afternoon on an unsecured $3,000 bond.
