Mobile Police Department confirmed Corporal Donald Pears was relieved of his duty as a homicide detective after being indicted for tax evasion by the Alabama Attorney General’s Office.

Friday, May 9, Corporal Don Pears resigned from the Mobile Police Department after pleading guilty to income tax evasion and filing false reports, officials said. The resignation is effective immediately and places Pears in bad standing with the department as he failed to give a two-week notice.

Mobile Police officials said the department was in the process of “administratively removing Pears’ certification” as a convicted felon, he he can’t serve as a police officer.

The homicide detective served the Mobile Police Department for almost 43 years.
