Coffee County Sheriff

A little more than 1,000 votes separated the two Coffee County sheriff candidates.

Both candidates had 50 percent of the votes but Dave Sutton edged out his opponent Lance Tindol by 122 votes.

Moments following the final tallies in the race, winner Dave Sutton congratulated Lance Tindol on a clean, well run campaign.

Both men ran their campaigns speaking of their own merits, and not slinging mud against each other.

Retired Army Lt. Colonel and current Enterprise High ROTC instructor Dave Sutton defeated Enterprise policeman Lance Tindol by 122 votes.

Sutton will be sworn into office in January.
