Police informant: My reward? A death sentence

E-mail Print PDF

A man made a career of catching criminals around Seattle but says his reward now amounts to a death sentence.

The drug informant says his life is now in danger because of his quest for citizenship.

Ernesto Gamboa is an undocumented immigrant but has spent the last 14 years helping police bust narcotics operations and exposing their ties to foreign cartels.

A detective, who asked to be anonymous, says Gamboa caught more bad guys as an informant than some officers do in their lifetimes.

"In my experience as a narcotics detective, he was probably the most effective informant that I had ever seen in my law enforcement career," he said.

But Gamboa is now behind bars at the Northwest Detention Center. His lawyer says he wanted a break from being a snitch, so Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested him, and are trying to send him back to El Salvador.
