DEA / US agent handed over secret information to Colombian drug traffickers, shared profits and laundered money from cartels in banks
Agent José I. Irizarry has pleaded guilty to 19 federal charges, including bank fraud and diverting millions of dollars in drug proceeds from DEA control, Local 10 News reported.
Timothy J. Shea, acting administrator of the DEA, said Irizarry’s crimes “do not reflect the high standards of conduct that we demand of our employees and agents.”
“Corruption and betrayal of the American people, the very people we must protect, have no place in the DEA, and neither does Mr. Irizarry,” Shea said.
Irizarry, 45, had been accused of filing false reports and ordering DEA personnel to transfer money scheduled for undercover operations to international accounts that he and his associates controlled.
He was also charged with sharing confidential law enforcement information with co-conspirators, prosecutors said, including a Colombian public official and an alleged drug trafficker and money launderer.
