Steven Campbell, 32, was also sentenced to three years of supervised release. Campbell was accused of hiding $46,785 in cash that he was stuffing his pocket when he was confronted by other agents at the raid.

According to a court affidavit by Nicholas Candela, a special agent with the Justice Department Inspector General, on Oct. 18, ATF agent Campbell was part of a task force that raided a home in Lyndhurt, Ohio shortly after 7 a.m.

Campbell went upstairs along with at least one DEA agent. A plastic bag full of cash was found under the dresser.
