Henry Arroyo, a former Key West Police Department resource officer at Key West High School, was arrested Monday on two felony counts of lewd and lascivious behavior for allegedly molesting a child younger than 12.
Arroyo, 41, resigned from the department last month after being placed on paid lead on Dec. 17.
Details on what specifically is alleged aren't clear but Arroyo was being investigated by the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Department of Lawn Enforcement.
He turned himself in at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island Monday around 9:45 a.m., according to booking records.
Arroyo earned $49,036 per year. He was hired in 1999 and resigned in April 2011. He was rehired in December that same year.
Arroyo's personnel file doesn't include any reprimands. In 2000, the Federal Bureau of Investigation for "exceptional service in the public interest recognized him" and in 2006 he was named officer of the quarter, police spokeswoman Alyson Cream said.
