Did Ternes Withhold Gang Information?

Did former Fargo Police Chief Keith Ternes withhold information about a growing gang problem in the city?

He did according to interim chief David Todd.

He says police first identified the problem over a year ago in March of 2014.

The information wasn’t shared with the mayor or city leaders until January 30th, a few weeks after Ternes resigned due to morale problems in the department.

City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn says Ternes should have shared the information earlier.

The city has since formed a street crimes unit to combat gang activity.
