WASHINGTON — ATF agent Clifford Dean Posey finds himself in big big trouble.

A grand jury in Virginia  charged Posey with 20 counts that included allegations that he stole  guns and cigarettes from ATF and sold them, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Wednesday, the day indictment was unsealed.

Authorities alleged that beginning in 2007, Posey, 43, of Chesapeake, Va. started falsifying documents “relating to firearms under his custody and control in order to embezzle and convert them to his own use.” On one occasion, authorities alleged, he advertised to sell those guns.

The indictment also alleged that Posey falsely submitted receipt and release reports to the ATF regarding firearms claiming that several stolen firearms had been returned to the rightful owners or destroyed, when in fact he had them.

Additionally, beginning in July 2010, while the lead case agent in a probe of illegal cigarette trafficking, Posey sold cigarettes in ATF custody and kept the money, authorities alleged.

i recall a cushy profile of an atf sac who took credit for cigarette smuggling cases in VA. don’t know if he supervised this agent but why are no federal managers EVER held accountable for failure to supervise like in any local police departmment. they just bask in the glory without accountability
