Cop Who Gave Snitch A Pound Of Marijuana Resigns

A San Leandro, California police detective accused of giving more than a pound of marijuana to a female informant with whom he was having an extramarital affair, has resigned.

Jason Fredriksson, 38, told San Leandro officials of his decision on Friday, said his attorney, Harry Stern, reports Chris De Benedetti of the The Oakland Tribune.
“He weighed his overall situation against the idea if litigating the employment aspect of it, and he decided it would be in everybody’s best interest for him to resign,” Stern said.
Fredriksson, one of four detectives in the department’s vice/narcotics unit, has been a San Leandro officer since 2002. He has admitted to banging a police snitch.
He pleaded not guilty on May 20 to one count of transporting and furnishing marijuana to the woman.
“There is no evidence concerning the idea that he provided marijuana to the informant,” Stern said “Jason took responsibility for having the relationship with the informant. He let down his family, first and foremost, and the department. And it was on that basis that he chose to resign.”
