MOBILE, Ala. — A 44-year-old former Mobile Police officer is scheduled Monday for arraignment following his arrest last week on various charges including possession of a controlled substance.
Al.com reports Cpl. Damian Colvin was arrested after an internal investigation. Police Chief Lawrence Battiste says the department began the investigation Aug. 22 after a complaint by a lower-ranking officer about Colvin’s alleged dealings.
Battiste says Colvin resigned before the probe was completed and turned himself into authorities last week. In addition to the drug charge, he faces a charge of second-degree theft of property and tampering with physical evidence.
Colvin was hired Jan. 24, 2004 and worked in patrol and robbery investigations. His arraignment is Monday at Mobile District Court.
