DEA Steals Truck to Use in Sting

A lawsuit waged against the Federal government by a Houston businessman alleges that the Drug Enforcement Administration “commandeered” his freight truck and destroyed it during a shootout with members of the Zeta drug cartel.

Steven Craig Patty is suing the Federal government, Houston DEA Chief Javier Peña, Harris County, Harris County Det. Mark Reynolds and 12 John Doe law enforcement officers in Federal Court for using him as a pawn in a drug sting operation that could have been taken “straight out a television script.”
