A Miami police official has been charged with masterminding a scheme to supply assassins to an international cocaine trafficking ring.

Federal authorities announced that Ralph Mata, 45, was arrested Tuesday after allegedly conspiring with drug traffickers running cocaine from the Dominican Republic to New Jersey.

The Miami Herald reports that the arrest of Mata, an internal affairs lieutenant, “reads like a plot from an action movie.”

According to the FBI’s Newark division, Mata went by an alias, “the Milk Man.”

He told the drug trafficking organization that he would use hit men dressed up as police officers to rub out rival dealers for a fee of $150,000 per assassination.

The phony cops would pull the targets over and then shoot them.

The ring “decided not to move forward with the murder plot, but Mata still received a payment for setting up the meetings,” the FBI said in a press release.

The lieutenant allegedly also helped move drugs for the group in “exchange for thousands of dollars in cash and a Rolex watch.”
