U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder: “Not one leak … not one disclosure.” during the course of a two year investigation.

Operation Guard Shack was a two-year investigation into law enforcement corruption in Puerto Rico, which came to a dramatic climax on October 6, 2010 with a series of predawn raids that led to arrests of over 130 members of the Puerto Rico Police Department as well as municipal departments and the Puerto Rico Corrections Department.

Cops were paid between $500 and $4,000 for each drug deal protecting undercover agents posing as drug dealers
Law enforcement officers in Puerto Rico were providing protection and other services to drug traffickers. Over 1,000 agents of the FBI conducted the raids — accusing police officers of aiding drug traffickers. Many of them were flown in secretly. The agency characterized the action as, “likely the largest police corruption case in the FBI’s history.”
Indictments announced on October 6, 2010 included:

61 members of the Puerto Rico Police Department
16 from various municipal police departments
12 from Puerto Rico Corrections Department
44 others associated with agencies including the US Army, Puerto Rico National Guard, and the Social Security Administration

FBI Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) and SWAT operators had already arrested 129 subjects in a seamless and successful operation by late morning — likely the largest police corruption case in the FBI’s history, nearly 1,000 Bureau personnel from 50 of 56 FBI field offices were in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is often a stepping stone of transport of cocaine and heroin.
