The owner of a small Texas trucking company got a shock recently when he got a phone call telling him that one of his drivers had been killed in truck — which was loaded with illegal drugs. The owner thought his truck was in the shop, but the truth was more complicated. The DEA was using his truck and employee in a drug-running sting — all without his knowledge. The truck required more than $100,000 in repairs after being abused in the operation, but the DEA doesn’t want to admit involvement, much less pay.
