Drug-Running Cops Busted

Kyes officers nabbed in sting

Two Keys lawmen were busted for trafficking drugs last week, the US Attorney's office said.

Federal agents nabbed Monrow County corrections officer Shawn Hernandez and Florida Fish & Wildlife officer Jonathon Jacox on a host of drug charges, including transporting cocaine and heroin.

The two are in custody in Miami, charged with possession with intent to distribute and conspiracy to traffic narcotics, as well as possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Officials said the crooked pair met with an undercover officer who arranged with them to have fake drugs moved to the Keys.
