EL PASO - An El Paso police officer has resigned after being charged with aggravated robbery.
In a statement released this morning, the police department said, "At this time Alberto Madrid is no longer employed by the City of El Paso as a Police Officer."
Specific details surrounding Madrid's departure have not been released.
The 18-year police veteran most recently was accused of stealing a money box from a wedding. He also was arrested in 2002 for driving while intoxicated and assault causing bodily injury.
Madrid was then arrested for a second DWI in 2006.
All the DWI cases against Madrid were dismissed.
