BROOKLYN, IL (KTVI) – Brooklyn Illinois police chief Steve Mitchell is out of a job following a raid by St. Clair County law enforcement. Authorities were seen carrying equipment, and boxes of records from the village’s offices last Wednesday.

St. Clair County States Attorney Brendan Kelly has stated that he will not prosecute any case that involved a Brooklyn detective who is accused of taking an assault rifle from an evidence locker and posing with it in a calendar. Kelly has also said he will also not prosecute any cases brought before him from another officer in the Brooklyn Police Department whose relative’s towing business helps the village police generating revenue from towing fees.
