FRUITLAND PARK, Fla. — A Fruitland Park police officer resigned last month after allegations surfaced that he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

James Elkins, 28, resigned on January 20 after the police department launched an internal investigation after receiving information that Elkins was distributing fliers promoting the KKK in Sumter County, according to Fruitland Park Police Chief Mark Isom.
