BRUNSWICK — Days after being arrested for allegedly trying to send obscene pictures to an underage girl, Officer Garrett Brosnan has resigned from the Police Department.

Brosnan turned in his resignation letter Saturday, June 25, according to Police Chief Richard Rizzo.

Brosnan had been on administrative leave, and the department was conducting an internal investigation into the charges against him.

Brosnan, 25, of Bath, was arrested June 21 following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations arm. He allegedly sent three photos of his exposed genitals to a federal agent posing as a 14-year-old girl in Arizona.

Brosnan appeared in U.S. District Court in Portland Wednesday, June 22, and was released pending trial, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. He provided a $10,000 unsecured bond, must live with his parents, and may not have unsupervised contact with children under 18.
