Tonight on LEAP DAY we ending the Drug War with former undercover narcotics officer Jay Fleming. After the "war on drugs" was declared, this dedicated law enforcer enlisted to make drug buys for the police department in his hometown of Spokane, Washington. Over the next 15 years, Jay fought against the burgeoning drug trade in various capacities. He trained undercover narcotics officers in Spokane and hired out to other departments across the Northwest, conducting long-term undercover investigations of murder, drugs and money laundering.
Jay recalls a drug case he worked on in Spokane that led investigators into Texas. The sheriff advised to not pursue because it would cost too much money and their department wouldn't receive credit. In Jay's experience, this wasn't an isolated incident, but rather the status quo. "If you called the DEA, it was the same thing," he says. "Unless it involved a ton of coke or pot, they didn't want anything to do with you."
