Wiggins police department moves to temporary location Monday

WIGGINS, MS (WLOX) -

Beginning Monday, the Wiggins police headquarters will be operating out of this senior citizens center on Magnolia Drive in Wiggins.

This temporary location change comes after their headquarters building experienced a leaking roof. After employees reported mysterious sicknesses, believed to be caused by the leak, Wiggins Police Chief Barnett decided it was in the best interest to temporarily relocate.

Friday afternoon, the department moved to Stone County E-911 building. Chief Barnett said they'll be located in the senior citizens center while an expert evaluates the condition of the building.  

Reporter Hannah Moseley talks with Wiggins Mayor Joel Miles and Chief Barnett about what this means for the city and how the safety of the public is still a priority.
