Two Drug Enforcement Administration agents have been convicted of conspiracy and making false statements to the government in national security forms -- basically, for lying to their bosses about running a strip club in South Hackensack, NJ. Prosecutors alleged in that Polos and Glover operated the Twins Plus Go-Go Lounge on the side — sometimes during their agency work hours. Glover was a part owner, and Polos had an ownership stake in the club. Glover once chastised a bouncer at the club for being too aggressive about checking the stalls and interrupting lap dances, according to the complaint.
Polos would text other club managers if he needed help covering all or part of his work shift — at one point joking about bringing President Obama, who was visiting New York, to check out some of the dancers. They had been accused of lying on national security forms they ed as part of background checks. Preet Bharara, United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, said if the two had revealed their connection to the strip club, they probably would not have passed the background checks required for their work "in part due to concerns attendant to certain types of employment, including proximity to crime and persons involved in crime and the risk of employee blackmail.
Prosecutors said the two had been warned by others, including employees, that at times drug use, drug sales and illicit sexual activity appeared to be taking place at and outside the club, which also operated as an all-cash business and did not pay required taxes during its first year in operation.
District Judge Paul G. Manhattan U. Attorney Bharara said: "David Polos and Glen Glover had important and sensitive law enforcement jobs that required honest answers to national security clearance forms. But as a unanimous jury found today, Polos and Glover lied on those national security forms, concealing their secret jobs owning and operating an adult entertainment club.
Their actions were not just a betrayal of their oaths as DEA employees, but as the jury found, a violation of federal law. POLOS, who supervised the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Strike Force, and GLOVER, an expert in sensitive law enforcement techniques who assisted narco-trafficking investigations domestically and abroad, failed to disclose their employment at, and ownership interests in, an adult entertainment establishment the "Club" in Northern New Jersey in connection with a background check to determine their suitability as employees of a federal law enforcement agency with access to classified information.
POLOS also failed to disclose his relationship with a dancer at the Club in response to a question about his relationships with foreign nationals. The national security forms POLOS and GLOVER submitted in connection with the background check required disclosure of outside employment in part due to concerns attendant to certain types of employment, including proximity to crime and persons involved in crime and the risk of employee blackmail. In addition, POLOS had, at the time he submitted his form, begun an intimate relationship with a foreign national from Brazil who worked as a dancer at the Club.
POLOS and GLOVER had been warned by others, including Club employees, that at times drug use, drug sales, and illicit sexual activity appeared to be taking place at and outside the Club, which also operated as an all-cash business and did not pay required taxes during its first year in operation. They also hired, fired, and paid bartenders, dancers, and bouncers; supervised the Club's renovation, advertised the Club in local periodicals; manned a back office available only to employees; remotely monitored video camera feed from the Club when not present; and generally tended to various Club-related matters.
Had POLOS and GLOVER truthfully disclosed their employment at the Club, their ownership and involvement in the affairs of the Club would have been investigated as part of their background checks, and the security clearances that they were required to maintain as federal law enforcement employees likely would have been denied.
POLOS was convicted of an additional count of false statements in connection with his failure to disclose his relationship with a foreign national. Each count carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. The maximum potential sentences in this case are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendants will be determined by the judge.
