A Lakeland police detective has resigned and two City of Lakeland employees have been disciplined in the wake of a sex scandal that has engulfed the Lakeland Police Department.
Detective Ricky Gries resigned Thursday afternoon, the Lakeland Ledger reported.
Brian Fluke, a maintenance coordinator with Lakeland Electric, and Jose Diez, an information technology support analyst, received three-day suspensions without pay, the city said.
According to a media release from the city, Fluke violated city e-mail policy and was "untruthful" during an investigation.
The city said Diez admitted to inappropriate sexual conduct with a former LPD crime analyst, who resigned in May.
