LASD Task Force Used Heroin-Packed Burrito In Jail Sting
January 26, 2012
A secret Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department task force used a burrito stuffed with 24 grams of heroin during jail sting to uncover corruption among its deputies, reports the Los Angeles Times.
A sheriff's investigator equipped a woman with a recording device and video pen to deliver the drugs to Mexican Mafia associate Carlos Gallardo via Deputy Henry Marin. The woman handed the burrito to Marin in a jail hallway. After he was questioned, Marin said he had not yet had a chance to search the burrito.
Deputies had recorded a call between Gallardo and a fellow inmate using coded language to discuss the transfer of drugs, which Gallardo called "his son" or "Junior."

Won't be the last time. I remember some deputies getting fired for taking some mafia guy some food.....without any drugs..I am sure they were promised something in return but I just can't remember what. Read www.whenlawmenlie.com

was he the deputy recruit in the Fox Reality show "The Academy" that was separated (A.K.A. terminated) from academy class 355?
If I remember correct, he had some personal issues he was dealing with and was washed out but returned with a later academy class.
