Undercover Coon Snitch – Andrew Chambers
DEA Coon Snitch – Andrew Chambers is believed to have worked on more cases and served the DEA for more years than any other full-time paid informant.
He worked more than 300 cases in Los Angeles and a dozen other cities, resulting in 445 arrests and the seizure of tons of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines as well as $6 million in assets, DEA records show.
One reason for Chambers’ effectiveness was that he passed himself off–to his DEA handlers, prosecutors and juries–as an upstanding citizen with no criminal background. But a tenacious public defender in Orange County began asking questions that led to the disclosure that Chambers has been arrested at least six times and was convicted of soliciting sex from an undercover police officer and impersonating a DEA agent.
