ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - A suburban Detroit official has joined the community's police chief in resigning after a state police raid on the mayor's home.

The Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV report Romulus Economic Development Director Tim Keyes submitted his resignation Friday hours after police Chief Robert Dickerson did the same. Keyes' letter said he could "no longer in good conscience work for the current city administration."

Dickerson wrote Mayor Alan Lambert's "decision to stay in office" left him with "no choice but to" quit.
