Episode 30 – Manuel Noriega’s Billion-Dollar Detroit Drug Operation, with Former FBI Agent Ned Timmons
Ned Timmons is a former FBI agent who specialized in drug crimes, having led investigations in the 1980s that resulted in the indictment of over 300 drug smugglers. While working undercover in the Cayman Islands, Timmons was part of the investigation that discovered hundreds of millions of dollars worth of marijuana and cocaine being smuggled into the US, and that led to the indictment of Manuel Noriega and the US invasion of Panama.
In his conversation with Mike and Kevin, Ned breaks down his investigation into the multi-billion dollar Caymen Island drug operation, and how he rose through the ranks to gain Noriega’s trust. He details the insane day-to-day life of a drug smuggler, and how Detroit played a massive role in Noriega’s drug operations.
