FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida. – A Florida sheriff’s deputy is accused of helping the leader of drug trafficking organization by giving him information about the police tactics and advising him on ways to prevent the investigators and prosecution.
A 113-page arrest affidavit shows 47-year-old Albury Augustus Burrows was Monday arrested while he was working for the Broward Sheriff’s Office. He faces 10 charges, including extortion, tampering with or fabricating evidence, and owning or renting a place for trafficking in drugs.
Bond for the 18-year veteran of the agency is set at $261,000, and records are not a lawyer.
The statement says the sheriff’s office, along with the (Drug Enforcement Administration), went on a search for the organization in January. Researchers say that the group is responsible for importing and distributing large quantities of cocaine and heroin.
