A sheriff’s deputy in Tennessee found himself on the wrong side of the law this week.

The Murfreesboro Post reports that Rutherford County Deputy Louis R. Parra-Flores, 36, was busted following an undercover drug investigation involving cocaine.

The DEA accuses Flores of attempting to deliver 7 kilograms of cocaine, the Post reported.

“The actions of a few corrupt law enforcement officers harms the reputation of the many dedicated men and women who wear the badge with honor,” said U.S. Attorney Jerry E. Martin.

Experts Optimistic That $500M in Stolen Art Will Be Recovered Despite Passing of Nearly 25 Years

Now that the FBI says it knows the identity of the suspects behind the heist of $500 million of art from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the question is: Will the feds recover rare works after nearly 25 years?

Art experts told the Washington Post that the chances are surprisingly good.

Christopher Marinello, an attorney for The Art Loss Register, a database of stolen artwork, said the stolen works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet likely will surface.

“A quarter of a century is not that unusual for stolen paintings to be returned,” the attorney, Christopher Marinello, told the Washington Post. “Eventually they will resurface. Somebody will rat somebody else out. It’s really only a matter of time.”

The FBI announced Monday that it has identified the two men who posed as cops and took off with 13 works of art.

Justice Department Makes It Easier for Law Enforcement to Obtain Personal E-Mails

The Justice Department has abandoned it’s long-standing opposition to requiring law enforcement to obtain a warrant before gaining access to certain e-mails, the Washington Post reports.

The department had objected to law enforcement accessing e-mails that are 180 days old or less if they had been unopened, the Post reported.

“There is no principled basis” to treat e-mails differently based on age, said Elana Tyrangiel, acting assistant attorney general in the department’s Office of Legal Policy, said Tuesday while testifying before a House Judiciary Committee.

Tyrangiel also said opened and unopened mail should be treated no differently.

Currently law enforcement may obtain older or opened e-mails with just a subpoena, the Post reported.

Ex-Fed Prosecutor a Favorite to Succeed Pat Fitzgerald

By Annie Sweeney and Christi Parsons
Chicago Tribune reporters

CHICAGO — A former federal prosecutor who helped convict former Gov. George Ryan appears to be the favorite to succeed Patrick Fitzgerald as the next U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, sources in Washington and Chicago told the Tribune.

The sources said Zachary Fardon, 46, is the leading candidate to be nominated to the federal law enforcement post in Chicago.

The White House declined to comment Sunday, saying that the internal selection process was still in motion.

DEA Tight-Lipped about Investigation into Prostitution Scandal in Colombia

The DEA is refusing to answer questions about three of its agents who are still on the federal payroll despite their alleged involvement in a prostitution scandal in Colombia, the Washington Examiner reports.

The accusations are serious. DEA agents are accused of paying for a prostitute for a Secret Service supervisor and obstructing the investigation by lying and destroying evidence, the Examiner wrote.

“And they are still on the job a year later,” state Rep. Frank Wolf, R-VA said. “That’s just not a good thing.”

The scandal broke in April 2012 when a dozens Secret Service agents were in Cartagena, Columbia, to prepare for a trip by President Obama.

Opinion: FBI’s ‘Deke’ DeLoach

Dan K. Thomasson 
The Reporter

The last time I saw Cartha D. DeLoach was all the way back in the early 1970s, when the nation’s attention was focused on the Watergate scandal. While he wasn’t one of the figures in the constitutional crisis boiling around the Nixon administration, he certainly had been a key in a series of events that historically set that stage.

“Deke,” as he was known, died last week at age 92. When I’d seen him four decades ago, he had left his high perch in law enforcement as J. Edgar Hoover’s third in command of the FBI and was then a private citizen in corporate America. We met in his office at PepisCo, the giant beverage conglomerate, where he was assistant to the president, to discuss a sensitive subject: the politicization of the FBI and its use, or misuse, by presidents.

Colorado Officials Pledge to Repeal Controversial Immigration Reporting Law

Colorado moved closer Monday to repealing a controversial law that requires local police to determine the status of immigrants and report undocumented people to federal authorities, the Denver Post reports.

A state House committee voted 9-2 to repeal the six-year-old law, SB 90, that state officials said has cost taxpayers $13 million a year and eroded public trust, the Post wrote.

“SB 90 needs to go away,” testified Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson, who was representing the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police. “It is outdated and ineffective.”

Some groups said the law also discourages immigrants from reporting crimes.

“Because they are brown, they feel like they can’t report crimes,” John “Eddie” Soto with the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition told the committee.
