We first reported in August that Luking was placed on leave after the FBI executed a search warrant at the Vincennes Police Department.

It's not immediately clear if Luking's resignation is in connection to this investigation.

We've reached out to the FBI for an update on that investigation. They are not releasing any additional information. We also have calls out to Assistant Chief Terry Johnson and Mayor Yochum's offices for comment. 

We will continue to follow this story and bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
