Former River Forest Police Chief Nicholas Weiss, who resigned in 2008 under pressure from the village board, has landed a position as interim chief of far southwest suburban Elwood, according to the Joliet Herald-News.

It's Weiss's second interim top-cop job in as many years since he was forced out in River Forest under controversy and briefly replaced by Frank Limon.

Weiss has shown a knack for finding his way into replacing other controversial chiefs. Before landing in Elwood, Weiss served as interim chief in northwest suburban Gilberts, where he replaced a 30-year veteran chief who was ousted in a 4-3 vote.

Elwood police officials were unavailable for comment Thursday evening, but the Herald-News reported that Weiss had recorded a message on the former chief's direct line.
