Capt. Guy Adams, second in command at the Carbon County Sheriff's Department since 1999, has resigned. His resignation is effective Friday.

Adams, a 21-year veteran with the department, tendered his resignation to Sheriff James Cordova on Monday.

The captain is scheduled for arraignment in Salt Lake's Third District Court next Monday morning on three misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief. Two of the counts are Class A, the third is Class B.

The charges stem from the scratching of the hoods and doors of three vehicles parked in a fenced and gated lot behind a South Salt Lake auto repair shop on Jan. 5.

Adams and Cordova had been at the shop for repairs on a department vehicle that day.

According to information filed by the Salt Lake County Attorney's office on Feb. 15, surveillance video showed Adams walking and standing beside each vehicle near the places where each had been scratched.

South Salt Lake Police Detective Chad Leetham also stated that the video showed Adams making an "up and down motion" on the hood of a 2012 GMC Sierra where damage was later found.

The detective's statement added that Adams is the only person on the video seen next to the damaged vehicles.

The information also notes the statement of Sheriff Cordova to investigators, in which the sheriff said he confronted Adams about the damages and Adams replied, "I don't think I did...I don't remember."

Cordova also told investigators that he called the shop owner to discuss the matter, and that while he was on the phone Adams twice stated that he would pay the damages to make the charges go away. When told of the video, Adams again said he could not remember the incident.
