What do Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper have in common? DEA Agent Jeff Moore and his investigation into the oldest drug trafficker for the Sinaloa Cartel – Leo Sharp. Sharp was 80, broke, alone and facing foreclosure when he was made an offer he didn’t refuse…transport cocaine for the most dangerous cartel in the world. The New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartels’ 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Sam Dolnick was made into the movie “The Mule”. This is the real story behind the movie.
Here are some pictures from Jeff and video from the actual stop by Michigan State Police that brought Leo’s career as a mule to an end. Nobody runs forever.
