From espionage to cyber hacking, the FBI has taken on a lot of significant cases in 2012.

The following list was posted by the FBI.

Insider trading: Charges against seven investment professionals were announced in New York in January alleging an insider trading scheme that netted nearly $62 million in illegal profits. Details

California gang takedown: A total of 119 defendants were charged in San Diego in January with federal racketeering conspiracy, drug trafficking violations, and federal firearm offenses in one of the largest single gang takedowns in FBI San Diego history. The target was the Mexican Mafia gang and its affiliates.Details

Economic espionage: In February, a federal grand jury in San Francisco charged five individuals and five companies with economic espionage and theft of trade secrets in connection with their roles in a long-running effort to obtain U.S. trade secrets for the benefit of companies controlled by the People’s Republic of China. Details

Cyber hackers charged: Several hackers in the U.S. and abroad were charged in New York in March with cyber crimes affecting over a million victims. Four principal members of the hacking groups Anonymous and LulzSec were among those indicted; another key member previously pled guilty to similar charges. Details

Anchorage man indicted for murder: In April, Israel Keyes was charged with the kidnapping and murder of an Anchorage barista. Keyes is believed to have committed multiple kidnappings and murders across the country between 2001 and March 2012. In December, after Keyes committed suicide in jail, the FBI requested the public’s help regarding his other victims. Details

Financial fraudster receives 110-year sentence: In June, Allen Stanford—the former chairman of Stanford International Bank—was sentenced in Houston to 110 years in prison for orchestrating a 20-year investment fraud scheme in which he misappropriated $7 billion to finance his personal businesses.Details

Nationwide sweep recovers child victims of prostitution: The FBI and its partners announced the results of Operation Cross Country, a three-day law enforcement action in June in which 79 child victims of prostitution were recovered and more than 100 pimps were arrested. Details

International cyber takedown: Also in June, a two-year FBI undercover cyber operation culminated in the arrest of 24 individuals in eight countries. The investigation focused on “carding” crimes—offenses in which the Internet is used to steal victims’ credit card and bank account information—and was credited with protecting over 400,000 potential cyber crime victims and preventing over $205 million in losses.Details

Health care fraud: In July, global health care company GlaxoSmithKline pled guilty to fraud allegations and failure to report safety data and agreed to pay $3 billion in what officials called the largest health care fraud settlement in U.S. history. Details

Russian military procurement network: In October, 11 members of a Russian military procurement network operating in the United States and Russia, as well as a Texas-based export company and a Russia-based procurement firm, were indicted in New York and charged with illegally exporting high-tech microelectronics from the U.S. to Russian military and intelligence agencies.

While more than one billion people tuned in to watch the ball drop at Times Square on New Year’s eve, a massive counterterrorism operation was underway.

CBS News went behind the scenes to see how the FBI keeps the city safe during one of the busiest nights of the year.

“It’s a nice target – a lot of media, a lot of cameras – to expose the world to whatever some insane person has got planned. It’s a target,” said Randall Derouin of the FBI.

A SWAT team was position in an underground garage. More than 100 FBI agents helped with security. And a bomb squad was on hand.

FBI Launches Another Investigation Involving Trenton City Hall

Trenton, N.J. housing projects started under former Mayor Douglas Palmer are the subject of an FBI corruption investigation, the Trenton Times reports.

Developer Robert Kahan, who was involved in all five projects, is named in the subpoena obtained by the Trenton Times.

Palmer, who often used Kahan as a developer, told the Times he has not been contacted by the FBI and believes the probe is directed at Kahan and not the city or him.

The investigation appears to be unrelated to another investigation that led to the indictment of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack, who pleaded not guilty to six corruption charges in December.
