CAPE CORAL, Fla. - An internal investigation by the Cape Coral Police Department found that Officer Albert Arroyo had accepted almost $4,000 in academic incentive pay to which he was not entitled.

On July 28, Acting Police Chief Jay Murphy notified Officer Arroyo that he intended to take disciplinary action up to and including suspension or termination. Officer Arroyo chose to submit his resignation effective today. Officer Arroyo also requested that the City deduct the amount he had accepted from his final paycheck.

Officer Arroyo had been employed with the Cape Police since June 2006.
