NEW YORK -- Dandeny Munoz-Mosquera may be one of the world's busiest hired killers, but not too busy for a leisurely afternoon at Disneyland.That was just one of Munoz-Mosquera's many stops during a trip the United States that apparently had spanned 12 days before it was abruptly interrupted Wednesday night by his arrest on a Queens street corner, according to federal officials tracking him for nearly two weeks.Munoz-Mosquera -- who federal agents say may have killed or arranged the murders of more than 40 police officers, judges and politicians for the Medellin drug cartel in his native Colombia -- was in the city to commit murder, according to Drug Enforcement Administration agents and court papers filed in Brooklyn.

WASHINGTON -- The siege goes on. The bills roll in.Guns and ammo? No problem, they bring their own. It's the klieg ZTC lights and dog food that start to add up.Not to mention the $109,000 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms shelled out for "aircraft and supplies."Even the federal bean counters have a role to play in the standoff in Waco, Texas.As the stalemate between the Branch Davidian cult and federal agents dragged past the midpoint of its second week, details emerged yesterday of just how dearly David Koresh is making the U.S. government pay.More than $1 million so far.

The 1970s corruption investigation known as Abscam, celebrated in "American Hustle," one of the holiday season's hottest movies, had its roots in Baltimore. It was in Charm City that the FBI tested the sting-style operation that marked Abscam as a particularly theatrical and effective form of undercover investigation. Baltimore FBI agents later trained those who carried out the Abscam sting. Abscam famously featured FBI agents posing as Arab sheiks, along with an accomplished con artist (played by Christian Bale in "American Hustle")

HOUSTON -- Ten and a half months after the apocalyptic ministry of David Koresh became known around the world with a deadly gun battle between his followers and federal agents, 11 surviving members of his sect are to go on trial today to face murder charges.Although even prosecutors have suggested that there is much confusion about who actually fired the fatal shots -- and though three defendants were not present during the gun battle -- the 10 men and a woman are all accused of being part of a broad conspiracy to kill federal agents during a raid Feb. 28 by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Federal prosecutors filed criminal charges this week against Baltimore police Detective Mark J. Lunsford, alleging he embezzled $10,000 in confidential-informant funds while assigned to a federal drug task force, lied to colleagues and stole a broken diamond watch from a target's home during a drug raid. "The charges are not unexpected, and Mr. Lunsford is extremely regretful that he finds himself in this position," defense attorney Paul M. Polansky said Wednesday. No court date has been set on the charges, which were filed Tuesday through a "criminal information" by prosecutors rather than a grand jury indictment.
