ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) -- A suburban Detroit official has joined the community's police in chief in resigning after a state police raid on the mayor's home.

The Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV report Romulus Economic Development Director Tim Keyes submitted his resignation Friday hours after police Chief Robert Dickerson did the same. Keyes' letter said he could "no longer in good conscience work for the current city administration."

Dickerson wrote Mayor Alan Lambert's "decision to stay in office" left him with "no choice but to" quit.

The Associated Press left a message Friday at Lambert's office and sent an email Saturday seeking comment.

Authorities say the investigation is unconnected to a 2011 scandal in which an ex-police chief and five detectives were accused of using drug forfeiture money to buy prostitutes, alcohol and marijuana.
