(Pottsville) -- Schuylkill County's longtime clerk of courts is resigning amid a corruption probe.

District Attorney Christine Holman and Controller Christy Joy say Stephen M. Lukach Jr. used public money to make personal car payments and buy items for his own use.

Lukach has returned about $1,100 to county coffers, according to Joy.

He faces state and federal investigations, but has not been charged.

Lukach has served as clerk of courts for 27 years. He'll resign as of Thursday.
