May 16, 2012 9pm Eastern. Join Andrew DiDonato and Kim Kolton in welcoming Joaquin "Jack" Garcia Real Wiseguys Radio!
Joaquin "Jack" Garcia is considered by many of his peers and leading FBI experts, to be the most successful undercover agent in the history of the FBI. In his 26 years of service with the FBI, and as an undercover agent in over 100 major operations, Jack is best known for his undercover role as "Jack Falcone," a self-described Sicilian jewel thief and drug dealer from Miami, Florida, who infiltrated the Gambino crime family of La Cosa Nostra in New York. After nearly three years of investigation, the case resulted in the arrest and conviction of 39 mobsters, including the top members of the Gambinos. Jack played his undercover role so convincingly that he was even proposed for membership into La Cosa Nostra.
Jack's other successful undercover investigations included corrupt politicians in Atlantic City, New Jersey; and corrupt police officers in the Hollywood, Florida, Broward County, Florida, Boston Police Department, and the San Juan, Puerto Rico Police Department. He also worked undercover in major drug cases, including dealers and leaders of the Colombian and Mexican drug cartels.
Jack speaks Spanish fluently and is a member of the FBI Agents Association, the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the NYPD Honor Legion, and the Society of FBI Alumni. He is a guest speaker and lecturer at the FBI Academy, the FBI National Academy, and the FBI Citizens Academy on Sensitive Operations and Undercover Agent Training. He has been featured on 60 Minutes, the Investigative Discovery Channel, CBS Evening News, and the CBS Early Show, among others.
Jack’s book, Making Jack Falcone, was a New York Times bestseller.
