A Wisconsin state narcotics agent, who fled in his car when confronted by FBI agents last March, is expected to plead guilty to stealing $1,100 in an FBI sting, according to the Associated Press.
Johnny Santiago, a special agent with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, is expected to plead guilty in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee, AP reported.
According to an affidavit filed in court in March by FBI agent Susan Blish, the agent said she and FBI agent Daniel Hargreaves planted $17,740 in cash in a vacant store front in Milwaukee as part of an investigation into theft of cash by police.
The placement of the cash was videotaped and the video continued to play as Milwaukee police and Santiago,a state special agent, entered the store around 1:25 p.m.
The videotape shows Santiago discovering the cash and reporting it to the other police officers. As is policy in the Milwaukee police department, a lieutenant arrived at the scene and counted the cash.
