Looks like the DEA is jealous of all the attention the ATF is getting with their gun trafficking scandal. So, what did the DEA do? They commandeered private property (tractor trailer) from a businessman and used the property, and an employee, in a drug trafficking scheme.
From the Houston Chronicle:
The phone rang before sunrise. It woke Craig Patty, owner of a tiny North Texas trucking company, to vexing news about Truck 793 - a big red semi supposedly getting repairs in Houston.
