      Macomb police officer resigns after facing fraud charges

      William Kennedy

      Now here's an update on the case of a Macomb police officer accused of forgery and state benefit fraud.

      Officer William Kennedy has now resigned.

      Authorities arrested him on Monday following a criminal investigation sparked by a citizen complaint accusing him of forgery and fraud.

      Police say Kennedy would write a check to himself from another person's account and illegally obtain and use a LINK card in another person's name.

      Kennedy had been a Macomb patrol officer since 2005.

      His next court appearance is in August.
