The two Mobile police officers arrested and charged with felony possession of crack cocaine Feb. 6 turned in their resignations today, police Chief Phillipp Garrett said.

Desmond Ryan Brooks, 28, and Aaron Porter, 32, resigned "in bad standing," the chief said today during a news conference.

The men still face criminal charges, Garrett said. An investigation is continuing to determine if other officers were involved in the criminal activity, he said.

An affidavit used to obtain a warrant said Brooks was involved in illegal "shakedowns," when answering calls involving possible drugs or money.

Undercover officers set up Brooks to see if he would take drugs and money without reporting it, according to the affidavit. Brooks took the bait and did not report what he found, investigators say.

Following Brooks' arrest, Porter, a rookie, was taken into custody after officers searched his home and found less than an ounce of crack cocaine.
