Border Patrol Agent Ivhan Herrera-Chiang had one major job – stop criminals from smuggling drugs.

But Herrera exploited his position to help smugglers bring meth, cocaine and marijuana into the U.S., the Arizona Central reports.

On Tuesday, he was sentenced to 15 years behind bars on four felony counts of bribery.

“You have done about the worst thing a law-enforcement agent could do, especially a Border Patrol agent, and that is passed confidential information” to criminal organizations, U.S. District Judge Paul Rosenblatt said during a sentencing hearing in Phoenix.

Herrara even helped smugglers find their way around underground sensors and lock combinations.
