CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Casa Grande has picked a senior police official in Scottsdale as the Pinal County city's new police chief.
Deputy City Manager Larry Rains says Johnny Raines has accepted a conditional offer from Casa Grande and is expected to begin work March 31.
The Casa Grande Dispatch (http://bit.ly/ZmTP87 ) reports that Cervantes will replace Chief Bob Huddleston, who is retiring on March 31.
Cervantes's offer is conditional on background checks, interviews with city officials and question-and-answer sessions.
Cervantes is now a police commander for Scottsdale. He joined the Scottsdale force in 1990 after working as an animal control officer in Gila County.
