LYNDEN, Wash. (AP) - A longtime Lynden police officer has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The Bellingham Herald reports (http://is.gd/gPyZeS ) 57-year-old Donald Glunt, 57, resigned Monday from his job at the Lynden Police Department. He had served as a patrol officer in the city for more than three decades.

Earlier this week the department’s leadership reviewed Glunt’s work cellphone because he’d been sending a lot of text messages. Lynden Police Chief Jack Foster asked the Washington State Patrol to launch an investigation after sexually explicit photographs of a 16-year-old girl were found on Glunt’s phone.

He was taken into custody on Friday and is being held in the Skagit County Jail.
