BEND, Ore. (AP) - A Deschutes County Sheriff’s captain has resigned amid an administrative investigation.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/vZTUnN ) that Capt. Erik Utter voluntarily resigned Tuesday. Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson says the resignation was without prompting and was not in lieu of termination.

Nelson would not say what the investigation pertained to, except to say it was not criminal and was not related to the investigation of Sheriff’s Capt. Scott Beard, who was fired Feb. 19 after being indicted on theft, fraud and money laundering charges.

In an email to sheriff’s office staff Feb. 24, Utter said he was leaving to explore other opportunities.
