Cove Leader-Press


Copperas Cove’s city planner Charlotte Hintchman tendered her resignation in a letter to Copperas Cove city manager Andrea Gardner in a letter dated Friday, December 1.

“This letter is to regretfully announce my resignation with the city of Copperas Cove There are no words to express the gratitude I have towards (sic) the city and yourself for allowing me the opportunity to grow and develop both personally and professionally throughout my career with Copperas Cove,” Hitchman wrote.

The resignation came days after Hitchman was detained by Target loss prevention and put in their loss prevention room, as confirmed by Sgt.  Stephen Miller with the Harker Heights Police Department.

On Harker Heights Police Department’s daily report for Sunday, November 26, there was a report of a theft under $100 from 200 E. Central Texas Expwy—Target in the Market Heights Shopping Center—in which a white female was arrested.

“When police arrived, Target refused to press charges for theft, but asked that a criminal trespass warning form be issued to her by the police which was done and then she was escorted out of Target to her own custody.  No arrest, no citation,” Miller stated.

Hitchman had been with the city since July 2016.
