One-time anti-drugs police commissioner arrested for alleged money-laundering

Drug TraffickingVHeadline News Editor Patrick J. O'Donoghue reports: Former Police Detective Branch (CICPC) general commissioner, Norman Puerta has been placed under arrest in the tiny European enclave of Andorra on charges of money-laundering. The 51-year old Puerta -- who is retired -- is said to have nested a $1 million account in an Andorran bank. The financial intelligence unit of Andorra claimed that the account is a transfer of funds from a narco-trafficking offshore society based in Panama. It appears that the Andorran police waited three years for Puerta to step foot in the country to access the account before they could take action against him. Puerta ran the CICPC anti-drugs unit for a little more than over a year ... he was a detective for 29 years. A report in Las Ultimas Noticias cited Puerta as being close to top-ranking CICPC general commissioner, Marcos Chavez. Police in the Andorra principality said they are continuing investigations to see if there are ramifications and others involved.

Editor's Comment: Interesting. This guy ran the anti drug division in Venezuela for a long time. He knows where a lot of bones are buried. Any chance he might be able to plead a deal to tie Hugo Chavez to drug trafficking. Hey, Noriega's cell is now available...
