Don’t let his code name with the FBI fool you.
Informant “Mellow,” as he’s code-named by the bureau, is anything but mellow.
MassLive.com reports that David Rodriguez, a former Latin Kings ember, helped target 24 suspected drug and gun dealers for the FBI in the less than a year in Massachusetts.
Rodriguez began working for the bureau after his third arrest for possessing crack cocaine in 2012.
He was paid $40,000 for his work, and his criminal case was dropped.
Rodriguez is the prosecutors’ star witness in a case against Luzander Montoya, who is accused of distributing heroin.
