Miami in the 80’s was a wild scene and former FBI Special Agent Ed Mireles joins the show to share some of his experiences being a special agent in Miami during that time. He shares how he went from a Marine to becoming involved in the FBI dealing with anti-terrorism and eventually making his way to Miami. It’s there that Ed shares his story of a shootout taking place April 11th, 1986 involving 8 FBI agents & 2 bank robbers. He details that a hunch led the agents to the location the robbers ended up hitting. Ed breaks down the entire sequence in great detail and reveals that the whole event from spotting the vehicle to ending the firefight lasted less than 5 minutes. Be sure to pick up Ed’s book “FBI Miami Firefight: Five Minutes That Changed the Bureau” for further details about the event.
