Former deputy chief of Fresno PD found guilty of conspiracy to distribute heroin, marijuana

Keith Foster, who swore to uphold the law as a deputy chief of the Fresno Police Department but ended up tarnishing his badge to commit crimes, was found guilty Tuesday of federal drug-trafficking charges.

Foster, 53, kept his lips shut tight while looking despondently at his supporters when the verdict was announced in U.S. District Court in Fresno. Family members openly cried in the court.

The jury found Foster guilty of conspiring to distribute heroin and marijuana, two charges against him. The jury hung on six other charges.

Judge Anthony Ishii allowed Foster to remain free on his own recognizance, saying Foster is not a flight risk because of his lifelong ties and police service to the community. Ishii also said Foster is not a danger to the public since the alleged crimes did not involve violence or weapons.
