DEA Supervisor Busted in ‘Improper Personal Relationship’ with Confidential Source

By Steve Neavling

A DEA supervisor was involved in an “improper personal relationship” with a confidential source, taking the source on dates and making unjustified payments to the source, according to a report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General.

The internal watchdog investigation was prompted by a tip from the DEA’s Office of Professional Responsibility, which said the unnamed supervisor “caused false statements to be made to justify” payments to the source, The Hill first reported.

The report also states the supervisor took the source on dates using a government vehicle, which is a violation of DEA policy. The supervisor also shared nonpublic information about personnel issues.

“The OIG concluded that the GS violated DEA policy and federal law when the GS approved payments to the CS without proper justification and when the GS approved a form relating to the CS knowing that it included false statements,” the report states.

Prosecutors declined to charge the supervisor, who the report says violated DEA policy and federal law.

A Border Patrol supervisor accused of placing a hidden camera in the flood drain of a women’s bathroom pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of making a false statement to a federal officer and seven counts of video voyeurism.

Armando Gonzalez also admitted he lied when asked by superiors why he had placed a camera in the restroom in San Ysidro, Calif.,  saying at the time that he was conducting a drug investigation.

Gonzalez captured video of the women’s private parts between July 2013 and April 2014.

Gonzalez kept the videos at work and destroyed evidence that he had at home.

“These crimes are an assault on the dignity of victims who are left to feel violated, powerless, anxious and unsafe,” said U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy. “It will always be a priority to protect our federal employees and the public from such despicable invasions of privacy.”

“The conduct in this case involves a violation of trust and common decency committed against the victims in this case,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge, Eric S. Birnbaum. “We believe that today’s plea is the first step in bringing justice and a sense of closure to the victims in this case.”
