The Bellingham Herald reports Donald Glunt, 57, resigned Monday from his job at the Lynden Police Department. He had served as a patrol officer in the city for more than three decades.
Earlier this week the department’s leadership reviewed Glunt’s work cellphone because he’d been sending a lot of text messages. Lynden Police Chief Jack Foster asked the Washington State Patrol to launch an investigation after sexually explicit photographs of a 16-year-old girl were found on Glunt’s phone.
He was taken into custody Friday and is being held in the Skagit County Jail.
