The two Boulder (Colo.) Police officers arrested on suspicion of conspiring to shoot and kill a trophy elk in the Mapleton Hill area Jan. 1 resigned Tuesday, police officials announced.

Officers Sam Carter, 35, and Brent Curnow, 38, turned in letters of resignation to police Chief Mark Beckner, and the resignations are effective immediately.

The two men are facing nine charges each—including three felonies—after an arrest affidavit alleged that texts between them show they planned to kill the elk as a trophy.

JUSTICE? I MUST HAVE READ THIS WRONG. MAY YOU NEVER WEAR A BADGE AGAIN. GO HANG OUT WITH YOUR HUNTING BUDDIES AND LINE YOUR WALL WITH THE HEADS OF INNOCENT CREATURES. HOW DOES IT FEEL WALKING AROUND WITHOUT A GUN, BADGE AND THE PROTECTION OF THE DEPARTMENT IMAGE YOU SWORE TO PROTECT.
