The police officer who pleaded guilty to federal marijuana possession and cultivation charges for running two indoor growing operations with his girlfriend is no longer an employee of the Hono­lulu Police Department.

An HPD spokes­woman said the department terminated Michael Steven Chu on Thursday.

When Chu pleaded guilty earlier this month, his lawyer, Sean Coutain, asked U.S. District Chief Judge Susan Oki Mollway to amend Chu’s release conditions to allow him to report for duty Wednesday. Chu had been on unpaid leave.
