Former FBI Agent Pleads Guilty to Stealing Cash Seized During Drug Investigations

A former FBI accused of stealing more than $126,000 in cash seized during drug investigations pleaded guilty Monday.

The Los Angeles Times reports that former special agent Scott M. Bowman admitted he stole cash to fund a lavish lifestyle that included plastic surgery and cars.

Bowman, 45, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice, falsification of records, conversion of property by a federal employee and witness tampering.

“As Mr. Bowman takes responsibility for his actions by pleading guilty, the public should be reminded that FBI personnel are held to the highest standards and misconduct of any kind is taken very seriously,” said James Struyk, acting assistant director in charge of the FBI’s field office in Los Angeles.

Bowman was an FBI agent since 2005 and was a member of an anti-gang task force in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

Did FBI Agent Swipe Some of Millionaire Heiress’ Fortune After 1977 Murder?

A millionaire heiress was murdered in 1977, and investigators found her cash buried in an Arizona desert.

According to the Indianapolis Star, an FBI agent who was investigating the case may have stolen a large chunk of her money and hidden it in a Swiss bank account, according to the Indianapolis Star. 

During the investigation, about $1.6 million of Majorie Jackson’s fortune went missing after she was fatally shot inside her Indianapolis home.

Investigators found a lot of her money buried in an Arizona desert.

“I’m not accusing the FBI agent of anything,” said Steve Koers, a nephew of Jackson and co-executor of her estate. “But it sounds like there could be something to it, so I think it is something that should be looked into.”
