Narc in Training


The Sanford, Florida, police department has fired Officer DeAnthoy Shamar after he tried to use a teenage Explorer Scout in an undercover investigation. Shamar planned to let the teen buy drugs from a suspected drug dealer. Shamar did not inform superiors of his plan and told the scout not to tell his father, who is also a police officer. Shamar has been the subject of 25 internal investigations in his nine years with the department. In 12 of those, officials found he was guilty of some violation of department rules or other wrongdoing.
