Arcadia Town Marshal William Hickrod has resigned.

This morning's resignation came after some residents of the town called upon him to be fired at Monday night's Arcadia Town Council meeting.

Some residents think Hickrod mishandled the case of Hershel "Bud" Moore, a 94-year-old World War II veteran who on Oct. 10 was beaten and robbed in his Arcadia home.

Two men were arrested and charged early Monday morning by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department and the Arcadia Police Department for the robbery and attack on Moore.

    The 94-year-old Arcadia man was tied up. And beaten.

    The intruders stole from him a large sum of cash. They also took other items from his home, located on the west side of the small northern Hamilton County town.

    “It’s about like the John Dillinger days,” said the Sheridan native Monday during a press conference at Arcadia Town Hall.
