DEA NABS 2 AGENTS IN ELABORATE STING

Two federal drug agents who thought they had developed a scheme to take money from drug traffickers found themselves targeted by an elaborate sting, authorities said.

Federal investigators said they caught the two longtime Drug Enforcement Administration agents with help from a confidential informant who posed as a drug trafficker.The arrests came five weeks after another Miami-based DEA agent was arrested on drugs charges.

Agents Drew Bunnell and Al Iglesias didn't know the man was taking orders from the DEA's own internal investigation unit, according to Tom Cash, the DEA's special agent in charge in Miami.
