CAMDEN — Camden's economic development director has been cleared of charges of impersonating a state official.

Brian Hodges had been investigated by state police after they found emails to state officials in 2011 that were supposedly from Deb Neuman, the state's deputy commissioner of economic development, a job Hodges once held. According to court documents, the emails came from IP addresses linked to Hodges.

Hodges tells WABI-TV that prosecutors dropped the case months ago, but he only found out a few days ago.

He says he was confident he would be cleared and is looking forward to focusing on his job in Camden.
