A federal jury in El Paso deliberated for less than three hours Wednesday before convicting FBI agent John Thomas Shipley of dealing weapons without a permit and lying to ATF agents about the sales, the El Paso Times reported.

ATF agents arrested Shipley, 40, last year after tracing back to him a .50 caliber rifle that was used in a drug cartel shootout in Chihuahua, Mexico, the El Paso Times reported.

Sentencing is set for July 8.

Authorities charged that he sold 51 weapons between 2005 and 2008 for more than $118,000.

The El Paso Times reported that Shipley allegedly kept two sets of records, one accurate one and another that was given to ATF that lacked pertinent information. He has been suspended from the FBI without pay.
