BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Baton Rouge police say a 27-year-old patrol officer has resigned after being accused of stealing an iPhone from a car after it crashed and the driver was booked with drunken driving.

Cpl. Tommy Stubbs, a police spokesman, says the phone wasn’t in the car when the driver got out of jail. Stubbs says a tracking feature showed that its name had been changed to “Jake Chustz’s iPhone,” and the driver recognized the name as that of an officer who had worked at the wreck June 2. He filed a complaint.

Stubbs says Chustz was booked late Wednesday with felony theft and malfeasance in office, and resigned early Thursday. He had worked for the department for five years.

An online jail listing shows he’s free on $10,000 bond.
