FORT MYERS, Fla. — We've learned two Fort Myers police officers were fired earlier this week in separate investigations, and one of those officers is accused of having sex while on duty.

Fox 4's Rob Manch is at police headquarters where he's working to find out more for you.

Fox 4 has have requested the termination letters and investigative reports on both officers. While we're still waiting on a response to that request, Public Information Officer Kristin Capuzzi was able to confirm to me that one of the two officers was fired for having sex on-duty.

Capuzzi tells us officer Brandon Winters was let go on Monday — and officer Joshua Kuhl was let go on Tuesday.

Winters was the one investigated on suspicion of having sex on duty.

In a press release, the department said that both officers were "engaging in behavior that is not acceptable for a Fort Myers police officer."

Capuzzi tells us we will likely learn more about why officer Kuhl was fired on Monday.

This announcement marks the second and third time officers have been fired here at the Fort Myers police department in just the last two weeks.

The first was officer Jason Jackson back on November 29th.

We are still waiting on a response to our public records request and we're hoping that we will soon have more specific details on what led up to the firing of the two officers announced today.

As this story develops, we will continue to bring you the latest information.
