DA’s investigator resigns from post
The investigator for the District Attorney’s office has stepped down from his position following allegations of burglary last week.
Rich Canon turned in his resignation at the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department on Monday, July 19. No criminal report was filed in the case, but Canon was charged with burglary following a probable cause hearing in Coahoma County. He was arrested on July 20 and posted a $2500 bond later that day.
The Board of Supervisors appointed Canon as an investigator for Tunica County cases handled by the district attorney in 2009. Prior to that, he was a deputy for the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, most recently working in investigations.
The case is being handled by the Tunica Police Department. Canon is being represented by attorney Stan Little.
