Former undercover federal agent Lou Valoze ’90 is featured in the premier episode of “Operation Undercover: Guns & Drugs in Carolina,” which airs at 11 p.m. Nov. 28 on Investigation Discovery.

In the series debut, Valoze, who served as an undercover agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for 25 years, executes operations to help keep guns and drugs off the streets in Pickens, S.C., according to IMDb, a digital source of news and information about movies, TV shows, and celebrities.

Lafayette magazine last year ran a Q&A with Valoze, who describes his experiences as an undercover agent in his book, Storefront Sting: An ATF Agent’s Life Undercover (Exposit Books). The book details how he set up fictitious businesses to reduce violent crime, among them a tattoo parlor, a military clothing surplus store, and even a head shop called Smokin Sal’s II in Statesboro, Ga.
