Retired agent Judy Tyler served 31 years with the FBI. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Judy Tyler reviews her hunt for fugitive Jack Saltarelli, fleeing a 20-year sentence for distribution of methamphetamine in Mississippi and his subsequent cooperation in the take-down of a farmhouse meth lab in the Pocono mountains, resulting in the arrest of nine individuals. (In Episodes 3 and 102 of FBI Retired Case File Review, Judy was interviewed about some of her other Philadelphia investigations and her FBI career).

Jack Saltarelli, facing a 20-year sentence for selling meth, an attempted hit on his life, and a young son who needed him, cooperated with agent Judy Tyler and the FBI to take down a criminal enterprise operating a series of productive meth labs. He is writing his memoir, revealing how he grew up on the mean streets of Philadelphia where he started running away from home at eight years old and the significant time he spent in prisons at Holmesburg, Lewisburg, and Terre Haute. However, for the past 28 years Jack has been chasing criminals around the country as a  bail recovery agent and bounty hunter.
