A federal jury on Wednesday found a Miami Beach firefighter, a Miami-Dade police officer and an accomplice guilty of transporting shipments of fake cocaine on behalf of a client they believed was a South Beach club manager — but in fact was an undercover FBI agent.
Firefighter Henry L. Bryant, Officer Daniel Mack, and co-defendant Octavius McLendon, a friend of Bryant’s, were each found guilty of conspiring to possess and distribute multiple kilos of cocaine and using a firearm to protect the shipments. Together, the convictions carry a minimum sentence of 15 years and could lead to life in prison.
According to court records, agents recorded five code officers — including Miami Beach’s lead code administrator — as well as Bryant and a second fire inspector accepting bribes in exchange for favorable inspections and lenient treatment.
On Dec. 21, 2011, Bryant went to the club and picked up nine individually wrapped kilograms of “sham” cocaine in a duffel bag, drove north in his own car and was followed by a gold sedan until he left Miami Beach. Bryant’s passenger during the trip: McLendon. Mack was acquitted of that offense.
On Jan. 14, Bryant, with McLendon, transported one more 10-kilogram bundle of “sham” cocaine with an escort from Mack in his police cruiser. Earlier, Mack was in uniform when he met the agents and agreed to the deal at a North Dade restaurant.
Mack, a 16-year veteran, was suspended from the Miami-Dade Police Department without pay after being indicted. Miami Beach officials said they were waiting on the verdict to finalize paperwork to fire Bryant...
