JONESBORO, AR - New Jonesboro Mayor Doug Formon has taken his first major act as the city's leader, appointing Jonesboro police captain Tim Eads as the city's interim police chief.

Eads will serve as the interim chief during the process of finding someone permanent for the position.

He will also deal with daily ongoings of  the department.

"I am just orienting myself with the position now, and catching up on parts of the budget I need to be aware of,"said Eads.

Eads is not seeking the position permanantly.

"I'll do it because it's needed, but I am happy in my position as a captain,"said Eads.

Eads temporarily replaces longtime chief Floyd Johnson, who died in his sleep last week.
