Lego Undercover Cop

Lego Undercover Cop – Beware! This story  about Lego undercover cops on UPI amused me. I suppose mainly because of the image of the  Lego undercover cop! This is what they had to say about the incident: An Oregon man was taken into police custody after agreeing to sell stolen Legos to an undercover officer in a sting operation. Pavel Illich Kuzik, 25, was arrested while driving a stolen car and booked on multiple outstanding warrants according to a press release by the Portland Police Bureau. Kuzik was suspected of stealing expensive Lego sets from Fred Meyer superstore locations and selling them at discounted prices on online marketplace OfferUp.com. Police and Fred Meyer Loss Prevention began investigating Kuzik in February 2016 before he was arrested on March… Read More

The Male Olivia Pope

The Male Olivia Pope Olivia Pope is the name of the leading character from the TV show  ‘Scandal.’ Pope is played by Kerry Washington and leads her own firm of crisis management consultants.   Embed from Getty Images   It is set In Washington DC and so the plot lines revolve around scandals and politicians. I found it enjoyable and in many ways it reminded me of the duplicity and shenanigans that I experienced in my undercover days. The “male” in the title of this post is a reference to a guy called Obie Chambers. He now heads up a company called The Exigency Group. This group operates in DC, Charlotte, Boston and New York and specializes in … wait for it … crisis management, strategic communications and public… Read More

What is it like to work undercover?

Undercover Work? – What’s it Like? As an undercover veteran, I was intrigued by this question when I spotted it in a  Quora forum. I was even more intrigued by the first of the answers. That answer is reproduced in full below. It is written by  Tim Dees, a criminal justice technology writer and consultant. His Quora profile adds that he is a retired police officer and criminal justice college professor, now writing on applications of technology in law enforcement and corrections. Dees is therefore an academic now and a popular one at that! His answers on Quora have exceeded 500k in the past 30 days! He is a retired cop from Reno. A lot of what he says below is correct, but I do take issue with… Read More

Undercover Cop – What Would You Do Next?

Try Your Hand at Being an Undercover Cop As an undercover cop what would you do given the following situation? It happened to me in real life and the detail of the encounter will be revealed in full in my forthcoming book.  The chapter will also reveal just what happened and the results. I’ll give you a clue – think out of the box! Undercover cop  police work is dangerous, no more so than when you have infiltrated, like me, close to the top echelons of a major drugs cartel. Possibly one of the largest gangs that ever existed, and the work I did certainly helped result in  one of the largest seizures of drugs by any law enforcement agency anywhere in the world! Here is… Read More

My True Undercover Detective Book is One Step Closer

To Being Completed …… Three cheers and a huge hip hurrah for my sister! She arrived in the Philippines last week suitcase full of my important stuff I had left behind in England. The Holy Bible that Dad bought for us all when we were kids. It must have cost a fortune then back in the day and boy! It’s heavy! Five kilograms in weight! I love that Book, not just because of the Scriptures, but also because it is replete with prints of famous Rembrandts and Reubens paintings depicting Biblical scenes. As you are aware, from my newsletter, I have a “forthcoming book” in the pipeline. It is my story. A true story of a remarkable part of my life as an undercover detective… Read More
