CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

A Chandler officer had a brief unpaid suspension for using police computers to look up a subject he believed his wife was having an affair with.

The investigation of Officer Garrett Dever, released Friday, showed Dever was suspended for four days.

According to the report, Dever was honest about the incident and had no past disciplinary action taken against him.

Dever's wife, former Tempe Officer Jessica Dever-Jakusz resigned in lieu of being terminated in November 2013 for her sexual involvement with a suspect being investigated for selling drugs.

The suspect with whom Dever-Jakusz was having an affair told investigators that she originally lied to him about the fact that she was married. When she came clean about that, she told him her husband was a Chandler police officer but that she was in the process of leaving him.

According to the suspect Dever-Jakusz was involved with, she told him that her husband had been "looking up a bunch of stuff on him."

Sources reveal the investigation involved Dever using police computers to look up a subject he believed his wife was having an affair with and then threatening that man.

Dever is the son of the late Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County. The sheriff was killed in a single vehicle accident in Northern Arizona in September 2012. Larry Dever's blood alcohol level at the time of his death was .291 percent. That is more than three times the legal limit.
