Four burglars masquerading as DEA agents were busted in the act.

WKYT.com reports that Lexington Police interrupted these burglars at an apartment complex where they had barged in early this morning, claiming to be part of a DEA sting.

“Some officers responded. They ended up interrupting a burglary. As they did that the people who were committing the burglary, took a shotgun and fled,” Lieutenant Andrew Daugherty said.

Two of the suspects were captured, while two others jumped out a back window and fled.

A hunt continued this morning for the two suspects.

Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has stuck around longer than many had anticipated.

ButAl Kamen and Colby Itkowitz of the Washington Post say there’s speculation that he could call it quits, possibly by the end of the year.

In other words, he wants to check that mission off his bucket list before calling it quits

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court handed law enforcement an added tool on Monday.

The Court ruled 8-1 that it was okay when Lexington, Ky.  police busted into an apartment without a warrant after smelling marijuana and fearing the suspect was trying to destroy evidence, the Associated Press reported.

The ruling overturned a Kentucky Supreme Court ruling that had thrown out evidence gathered during the raid of Hollis King’s apartment, AP reported.

“Occupants who choose not to stand on their constitutional rights but instead elect to attempt to destroy evidence have only themselves to blame,” Justice Sam Alito said in his opinion, according to AP.

Justice Ginsburg, the lone dissenting vote, said the ruling gives police an easy was to forgo warrants in drug cases, AP reported.

“Police officers may now knock, listen, then break the door down, never mind that they had ample time to obtain a warrant,” she said.
