MASSENA, N.Y. (AP) - More than a month after he was arrested on drug charges, the mayor of an upstate New York town announced that he was resigning on Tuesday.

Tim Currier, the mayor and former police chief of Massena, New York, was arrested on Dec. 1 and charged with possession of a controlled substance, tampering with evidence and failure to comply with a police officer.

WWNY-TV reports he says his resignation will take effect on Feb. 1 and that he remains “profoundly sorry” for his actions.

Currier entered a not guilty plea at an arraignment in December and is scheduled to appear in court next on March 15.
