To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Any records concerning Richard Wershe Jr., AKA "White Boy Rick" born 1969. According to news reports, Wershe was the target of DEA surveillance beginning in 1986, and also allegedly a DEA informant. Wershe was convicted in 1988 of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
If some of these records are disclosable and others are exempt, please provide the disclosable records and let me know the exemption(s) preventing disclosure of the
rest. Please note that according to 5 U.S.C. § 552(b): "Any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be provided to any person requesting such record after deletion of the portions which are exempt under this subsection."
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
A fix is required to perfect the request.
