Dead Detroit FBI Agent’s Work Leads to Bust

DETROIT — Four Detroit men have been charged as part of a $1.4-million cocaine bust in western Pennsylvania, a case the Detroit FBI agent who died after a car wreck Monday had been working on.

The Michigan men, along with four from Pennsylvania’s Westmoreland and Allegheny counties, helped distribute an estimated 20 kilograms of cocaine last year, Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett said Tuesday. Three of the Detroiters are said to be members of a gang called the A-Team.

FBI Agent Paul Sorce, 44, killed in Harper Woods while on duty, was the Michigan point man for the investigation, Corbett’s spokeswoman Lauren Bozart said. It was unclear if the married father of four was working on the case when his Chevrolet Trailblazer rolled over about noon Monday.

Julio Olivo, 23; Andre Thomas, 23; Charles Edwards, 30; and David Bailey, 23, are charged with possession with the intent to deliver cocaine, delivery of cocaine and criminal conspiracy. Olivo, allegedly the A-team’s second-in-command, is also charged with criminal use of a communication facility.
