Holyoke firefighter resigns in drug probe
HOLYOKE (AP) -- A top aide to Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse says a firefighter has resigned as police investigate an allegation of drug possession by at least one member.
Rory Casey, Morse’s chief of staff, told The Republican that a firefighter he did not identify resigned Friday.
Casey said internal investigations in the fire and police departments have been launched in response to a drug investigation by the Massachusetts State Police. He says the nature and direction of the investigation are developing.
A spokeswoman for the State Police did not comment and Fire Chief John Pond did not return calls by the newspaper seeking comment.
