An explosive development in Los Angeles has led to the exposure of a shocking conspiracy involving drugs, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Raiding the home of Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputy and federal anti-narcotics task force member Johnny Domingue, authorities discovered 300 grams of cocaine, hydrochloride, oxycodone pills, methadone, Xanax as well as numerous prescriptions for various medications.

Authorities claim that he also regularly shook down drug suspects in order to seize any drugs and money on them and used his access to DEA evidence lockers and steal from them.

The ensuing fallout will undoubtedly put heat on both the Sheriff's office and the DEA.
