Firefighter Brandon Gore has abruptly resigned from the Los Alamos Fire Department and Capt. Jacob (Jake) Olivas, who lost his job Feb. 7 over a random drug test irregularity, has appealed his termination.
“Brandon has resigned for personal reasons,” Los Alamos Fire Chief Doug Tucker said, adding that he cannot comment further on a personnel issue.
Gore, 25, lives in Edgewood and on Nov. 28, he was arrested and charged with indecent exposure. He told a Bernalillo County sheriff that he was a little drunk and was walking to clear his head. As he approached a pedestrian bridge, he had to urinate, did not see anyone and relieved himself.
