David Polos, an assistant special agent in charge with the DEA, and Glen Glover,  an information technology specialist with the agency, were convicted Thursday in Manhattan federal court of conspiracy and making false statements by failing to disclose their ownership and involvement operating a New Jersey adult entertainment club.

The conviction followed a two week trial before before U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe.

 “David Polos and Glen Glover had important and sensitive law enforcement jobs that required honest answers to national security clearance forms,”  Manhattan U.S. Attorney Bharara said in a statement. “But as a unanimous jury found today, Polos and Glover lied on those national security forms, concealing their secret jobs owning and operating an adult entertainment club.  Their actions were not just a betrayal of their oaths as DEA employees, but as the jury found, a violation of federal law.”

Authorities said the criminal complaint and evidence in trial established that Polos, who supervised the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Strike Force, and Glover, an expert in sensitive law enforcement techniques who assisted narco-trafficking investigations domestically and abroad, failed to disclose their involvement in operating the  Twins Plus Go-Go Lounge in South Hackensack during a background check to determine their suitability to have access to classified information.  

Polos also  failed to disclose his relationship with a dancer at the club in response to a question about his relationships with foreign nationals, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. The dancer was from Brazil. 

Authorities said the national security forms that Polos and Glover submitted for background checks required disclosure of outside employment, in part due, to concerns that certain types of employment might put them at risk of blackmail.
