Montgomery County Sheriff Robert Dierks announced today that it is with deep sadness that the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has accepted the resignation of Undersheriff Troy Mackie.

Sheriff Dierks stated that Undersheriff Mackie tendered his resignation to be effective September 6th, 2013 citing personal reasons.  Sheriff Dierks indicated that he has accepted Mackie's resignation and added that he will be missed by the department.
