Two Miami Cops Charged With Aiding Cocaine Traffickers in FBI Sting
Two veteran Miami police officers have been charged in an FBI undercover operation:
Two veteran police officers were charged Friday with providing protection for purported shipments of cocaine and stolen goods in what was actually an undercover FBI operation.
Officer Geovani Nunez and Detective Jorge Hernandez are accused in court documents of helping protect shipments of what they thought were stolen televisions and computers and at least 12 kilograms of cocaine — sometimes by using their police cars to escort trucks.
The officers have been fired. This isn't the first time cops have gone bad in Florida.
The case is similar to a recent FBI sting that led to guilty pleas from five officers in Hollywood, Fla. Four received lengthy prison sentences.
