How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former FBI Agent Pleads Guilty to 64 Criminal Charges Tied to Heroin Abuse

A former FBI agent who stole heroin that was collected as evidence pleaded guilty Tuesday and warned of the powers of addiction.

The Washington Post reports that Matthew Lowry, who worked in the Washington Field Office, apologized outside of the D.C. federal courthouse.

“Today I informed the court of criminal acts of misconduct that I committed while trying to handle my pain medication,” Matthew Lowry told reporters. “I want to apologize and say I was wrong.”

The 33-year-old agent pleaded guilty to 64 criminal charges, including obstruction of justice, possession of heroin and tampering with evidence.

Lowry’s attorney said his client started using heroin after being given a powerful pain medication that he shouldn’t have been prescribed.

“Hopefully from this situation I’ll be able to stand as an example of how not to deal with prescription pain medication abuse and be able to help people understand how powerful and addictive and dangerous they can be,” Lowry said.

Asked how he was holding up, he paused and said, “I’m getting better.”
