Update on Officers Caught in FBI Fake Cocaine Sting

Yesterday and today the Chicago Tribune has reported on guilty pleas by law enforcement
agents to federal drug charges stemming from an FBI sting operation. In the first case, the
guilty pleas were characterized as being part of a plea agreement, and sentencing is
scheduled for January 5. The sting, named Operation Blue Steal (playing with homonyms
this time, those mischievous operation-namers), resulted in charges against nine current
or former officers. The law enforcement personnel allegedly took part in thefts from cars
on Chicago's South Side that contained cash and fake drugs. Vice Squad noted (here) the
original story of the arrests.
