Married female police officer caught having sex with drug dealer during undercover operation
A police officer was forced to resign after being caught having sex during an undercover drug operation, according to police reports in Arizona.
The police officer had an affair with the drug dealer, who she was investigating, and blew the cover of the investigation while she lay in bed with him.
Tempe Police Detective Jessica Dever-Jakusz, 38, met her lover in June 2013, following an undercover purchase of narcotics, and in August, she was having sex with him at his home on an ongoing basis.
On October 10, after having sex, Dever-Jakusz, who is married to a police officer, revealed that she was working undercover to arrest him.
Police detained the drug dealer for questioning, and he admitted to having a sexual relationship with the undercover detective, Dever-Jakusz. Dever-Jakusz is a 13 year veteran of the police force.
The drug dealer revealed explicit text messages he exchanged with Dever-Jakusz, including one in which she was asking him for permission to come over to his house later that day.
The affair ruined the five month undercover investigation, which is nicknamed Molly.
The drug dealer told police that he was surprised when Dever-Jakusz told him she was a police officer actively trying to send him to prison.
Tempe Police said that no charges will be filed against the suspect with whom Dever-Jakusz had the relationship with.
