According to Miami attorney Alan Ross, who defended Borjas in court, the scale of the Sunrise Police cocaine stings seemed almost industrial.

"The police are not actually finding these drug dealers on their own but they rely on paid and unpaid informants to tell them about people that might be looking for cocaine, and it became obvious to us that the reason they are doing this is because of the money," said Megan O one of the reporters who broke the story.

The Sun Sentinel was the first to report the Sunrise Police lucrative sting operations after the newspaper conducted a six month investigation into the department drug seizures.

Sunrise, Fla., is a bedroom community, home to one of the country biggest shopping centers and mile after mile of identical, coral colored condos. But millions of dollars worth of undercover drug commerce has occurred in this unlikely setting.

When asked if the Sunrise Police seemed overzealous in trying to bring in potential drug dealers, Ryan called it an "unfair" allegation.

"They can take their cars, jewelry," O said. "One fella told us a cop said, I like the sunglasses you wearing, and snatched them, so there is a real profit motive for the police."

"There are occasions when errors are made. There are occasions when somebody goes too far and it doesn go perfect," he said. "The reality is, hundreds of arrests were made, hundreds who pled.

Gus Borjas, a nurse by profession and a father of four from Homestead, Fla., got caught up in one of the Sunrise Police cocaine stings.

the DEA and others. This was part of the operation to stop cocaine. It was an effort to stop cocaine and heroin from getting back to other communities and it worked."

"These people only get paid if the deal goes down," Ross said. "Gus isn the one who pulled off his backpack and opened it up. The informant did. She takes his backpack off, she unzips it, she reaching in for the money. Gus isn the one who took the cocaine, she took a kilo of cocaine stuffed it in his backpack. the backpack, go get arrested. very unfair," he said. "Why should you go to jail if you not a criminal? Why do they have to make up cases? Only criminals are supposed to go to jail, you know."

For years, the Sunrise, Fla., police have been conducting what are called "reverse stings." Undercover police detectives play the role of cocaine dealers and try to lure in potential buyers who drive or fly in from all over the country with wads of cash.

Informants in these stings can also make a lot of money. According to Sunrise police reports, one informant not connected to Borjas case was paid a total of $800,000 over five years for bringing drug buyers into sting operations.

"It a huge business," Ross said. "It a multimillion dollar business. It been going on for years. It been a daily event in the city of Sunrise."

Over the past two years, the police department has netted $5.8 million in seized money, according to the Sun Sentinel. The money was used to purchase new equipment and to pay officers involved for overtime. Some officers even doubled their salary in overtime pay alone, and in Florida, the laws also permit police to seize non monetary assets from suspects, the paper reported.
