Operation Desert Glow was an investigation into illegal corporate pollution involving nuclear waste at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Facility. For years the FBI and a grand jury had been investigating environmental crimes at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant located between Boulder and Denver. On June 6, 1989, agents from the FBI Las Vegas Field Office led the first and only raid on a nuclear weapons facility. On March 26, 1992, Rockwell International, the company operating Rocky Flats from 1975 to 1989, agreed to plead guilty to 10 charges of violating federal environmental laws. Rockwell paid $18.5 million in fines, the largest sum ever collected for violations of hazardous waste laws.
