The ATF executed a search warrant at a home owned by a Pasadena police officer on Thursday.

The officer is on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation, CBSLA.com reports. 

“The ATF told [Pasadena Police] Chief [Phillip] Sanchez its investigation was unrelated to the officer’s duties with the department,” William Boyer, spokesman for Pasadena, wrote in a news release.

Federal agents were spotted loading dozens of gun cases from the officer’s home in Sierra Madre.

“The officer was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal affairs review per department policy,” Boyer said. “The officer has not been arrested nor have there been any charges filed against the officer at this point.”

A veteran Boston police officer who lied to the FBI is resigning as part of a plea agreement that would prevent him from going to jail, the Boston Herald reports.

David Michael Fitzgerald, 49, admitted making false statements to the FBI on April 27 while agents investigated a street-level drug dealer. They discovered that Fitzgerald made cash loans to the drug dealer.

“Fitzgerald falsely stated to the FBI special agents were investigating that (1) the purposed of his earlier meeting that day with the Associate was simply social in nature and (2) he had never loaned money to the Associate,” court documents state. Fitzgerald has known the drug dealer and bookmaker since 2006, the filings state.

Fitzgerald’s attorney said his client is a good man who made a bad mistake.

“He was a very well respected police officer,” the attorney, Kenneth Anderson, said. “He’s a great guy who had a lapse of judgment and made a mistake.”
