Fresno Police Chief Deputy Arrested on Drug Charges After FBI Bust

By    |   Friday, 27 Mar 2015 07:24 AM

The deputy police chief of Fresno, California, was arrested Thursday on drug charges for possession and intent to distribute heroin, oxycodone, and marijuana.

NBC News reported that Keith Foster, 51, was busted by the FBI and ATF after a year-long investigation that also saw the arrests of residents Rafael Guzman, Jennifer Donebedian, and Randy Flowers.

Foster is a 29-year veteran of the police force, has been deputy chief since early 2007, and oversaw patrol operations for the city of half a million.

"This is a very sad day for the Fresno Police Department, the citizens of Fresno, the law enforcement profession, and for me personally," Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

Dyer said Foster is on paid administrative leave while an internal investigation is being conducted.

The ATF appears to have snagged Foster delivering prescriptions of oxycodone pills to Flowers in December and January.
