The murky world of informants

• Baltimore Sun
 Baltimore police are again dealing with allegations that one of their undercover detectives got too close to his informant. On Sept. 24, federal authorities charged Officer Mark J. Lunsford with putting his informant's name on drug cases in which he was not involved, then recommending that he be paid bonuses for any arrests and convictions. Authorities said the informant then shared the bonus money with Lunsford, who was part of a DEA task force.
