Former Sunnyside deputy chief accepts new job

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Sunnyside's former deputy police chief is leaving the department. Phil Schenck accepted a new job as the Othello police chief.

Schenck once made headlines when he told KIMA he'd been fired by the interim city manager, Frank Sweet. But it was only a disciplinary letter.

Sweet eventually lost his job.

Schenck has been a part of the Sunnyside Police Department for nearly 25 years.
