(Scroll down for video) Several drug enforcement agents were suspended for a few days after they were caught at sex parties run by drug dealers, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said.
The Office of the Inspector General at the Justice Department said that the parties were funded by the local drug cartels in Colombia.
The Justice Department also expressed concern about the inadequate reporting by various law enforcement agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Marshals Service and the Office of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
According to the investigation, 10 officers participated in sex parties at a facility rented by the U.S. government. Drug cartels provided money, expensive gifts, and weapons to some of the officers.
After the investigation was complete, seven of the officers admitted to attending the sex parties, and were suspended for between two and ten days.
The Justice Department said that the parties were held over a period of four years.
A Justice Department spokesperson said that they are working to ensure a zero tolerance policy towards sexual harassment and misconduct.
