ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A government-owned newspaper says Tehran's former police chief has been released from jail due to lack of evidence on "morality charges."

The newspaper, IRAN, quotes a spokesman of the Iranian judiciary, Ali Reza Avai, as saying the police officer was released because of insufficient evidence.

Avai declined to mention the name of the individual, who was identified as Gen. Reza Zarei by local media.

In April, local media reported that Zarei was taken to jail after he was found with six nude women during a police raid on an underground local brothel.

Zarei had been in charge of fighting vice.
