Meet Mike Fredericks
"Mike Fredericks is the Real Deal."
DEA Chief of International Operations
Mike Fredericks worked as a sky marshal, US Customs Special Agent, and DEA Special Agent in overseas assignments in Colombia, Pakistan, the Caribbean, and South Asia, busting drug traffickers and enforcing US drug laws. After his retirement, and following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he trained international airline pilots on counterterrorism and vital aviation security procedures.
During his time in Colombia as part of the DEA, Fredericks investigated the infamous Medellin cocaine cartel, pursuing notorious traffickers Pablo Escobar and Carlos Lehder, and raiding jungle cocaine laboratories with the Colombian National Police, and more. Later, his award-winning team gained recognition for record-breaking financial seizures while disrupting cocaine and heroin trafficking in the Caribbean.
Now, he's recounting many of his real-life adventures in his new book Busting Drug Dealers.
