CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago Police lieutenant resigned from the force after federal prosecutors charged him with taking part in a mortgage fraud scheme.

The Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/17QfDkC ) reports the police department announced that 52-year-old Erroll Davis quit on Friday. Davis was a former member of the department's marine unit who had been a police officer for 27 years.

Davis is accused of teaming up with bank owner Robert Michael help former County Club Hills Chief Regina Evans fraudulently get a $650,000 loan.

Davis hasn't appeared in court. He did not return a call for comment Friday night. Michael pleaded not guilty on Friday. Evans has not been charged in the alleged scheme but she has pleaded guilty to federal charges in connection with a state grant-fraud scheme.
