Man: DEA Supplied Me With Crack Cocaine in Exchange for Help in Undercover Drug Probe

Correction: The story originally said the FBI instead of the DEA.

The DEA  supplied a drug addict with crack cocaine in exchange for his help in an undercover drug investigation in Las Vegas, he claims in a lawsuit filed against the feds, the Associated Press reports.

Aaron Romero, 38, claims his previous crack addiction came roaring back after the DEA began giving him the drug to help in an investigation known as “Operation Smack City.”

Romero said he suffered emotional and physical harm.

“The United States government and the defendants affirmatively and intentionally established a pattern of distribution of crack cocaine to (Romero) in order to utilize his addiction to crack cocaine to further the investigation and to ‘stack drug related charges’ against him,” the lawsuit said, naming five DEA agents.

According to the lawsuit, the federal prosecutors dismissed drug charges against Romero in January in exchange for his participation.

The lawsuit claims the crack violated DEA policies.
