By Scott Kimbler Reporter

A Gwinnett County Sheriff's Deputy resigned the force amid an investigation he may have removed cocaine from the department's evidence room. 

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Antione Riggins resigned when investigators questioned him about some missoing cocaine. There is another instance being investigated where Riggins is said to have been given three kilos of cocaine at a crime scene, but only one kilo was checked into the evidence room, according to the paper. 

Riggins had been with the sheriff's office since 2004.
