Veteran Detective Coon resigns
By Pat Maurer
Detective Lt. Mike Coon, with the Clare County Sheriff’s Department for more than 30 years, submitted his resignation January 30th.
Undersheriff Dwayne Miedzianowski said he resigned late Thursday morning from the department. No reason was given for his resignation.
Clare County Prosecutor Michelle Ambrozaitis said she learned of his resignation when the Sheriff’s Department sent her a memo. “I received the message that he had resigned and the department ‘wished him well’,” she said.
The Undersheriff said Coon’s letter of resignation also thanked the department. He had been with the Clare County Sheriff’s Department since October, 1991, Sheriff John Wilson said.
Wilson said, “He was a good detective solving many of crimes in this and other counties. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
