For three years, Steven Gibbs was under investigation as a dirty cop, accused of siphoning cash from a drug dealer, as other Los Angeles County narcotics deputies had admitted doing. But when the U.S. attorney's office declined to prosecute his case, Gibbs was not home free. The day before the statute of limitations expired, the county district attorney's office charged him with stealing about $60,000 from a drug dealer and lying on a search warrant.

Peering through the peephole of his room at the Valley Hilton Hotel, Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Sobel surveyed the empty corridor. The drug dealer who had occupied the penthouse suite across the hallway was nowhere in sight. Sobel nodded to his narcotics deputies, Dan Garner and Jim Bauder. The officers slipped outside, spotted a hotel maid and flashed their badges. She opened the penthouse door. A few minutes later, the deputies returned to Sobel's room with a gym bag.
