Guam - A Guam Police Department officer, who was under suspicion of using drugs, has resigned from the force. Police Chief Fred Bordallo confirms with KUAM News that the allegations of drug abuse were substantiated during the internal affairs investigation.

The officer was placed on administrative leave for 20 days and returned to the force but was removed from her position at the Criminal Investigation Division. Instead the officer was assigned to the Crime Lab. Bordallo says he received the officer's resignation on Monday - the same day he intended to terminate her. 

This is the second confirmed incident of a police officer using drugs. As KUAM News reported, a police officer assigned to Patrol recently claimed safe harbor, admitting to using drugs. GPD is currently coordinating with the Department Of Administration to begin a drug treatment program for the officer and to monitor him. 

Chief Bordallo says if at any time during his rehabilitation the officer tests positive for drugs, he will immediately be terminated.
