ANDALUSIA, AL (WSFA) -

An Andalusia Police Department sergeant arrested on multiple charges last month has resigned.

City officials say Jason Curry resigned prior to a personnel hearing that was scheduled for Tuesday.

Curry was arrested March 19 on multiple charges, including illegal drugs and promotion of prostitution.

Andalusia Mayor Earl Johnson and Interim Police Chief Paul Hudson said Curry was relieved of his duties following the arrest.

Much of the details are still limited, as the investigation is ongoing. Officials with the ABC Board confirm they are investigating at the request of the Covington County District Attorney's office and assisted with the arrests.

Curry is charged with Distribution of Controlled Substances, Possession of Controlled Substances and Promotion of Prostitution. Curry's father, Otis "Randy" Curry, was also arrested and charged with two counts of Distribution of Controlled Substances.

Jason Curry's bond was set at $165,000. Otis Curry's bond was set at $200,000. Both have since posted bail and are currently out of jail.
