Ex tech employee arrested by FBI after trying to sell top secret DEA access codes
A disgruntled former employee of an aerospace and technology giant hacked into the firm’s satellite tracking system and tried to sell information on DEA movements to a Mexican cartel, newly released FBI documents claim.
Satellite expert Robert Miller – who DailyMail.com has learned was fired from Honeywell Aerospace in February this year – hoped to bag $2 million from the black market sale of secret access codes for the firm’s high-tech location-tracking system, the documents state.
But instead the 45-year-old was duped into meeting an undercover FBI agent posing as a member of a well-funded Mexican cartel and was swiftly arrested.
