FBI Agent Arrested for Stealing and Using Hundreds of Grams of Heroin


FBI Headquarters in D.C.

In Washington, DC, an FBI agent was arrested last Friday for stealing hundreds of grams of heroin seized in drug raids, keeping it in his car, and occasionally using the drug.

Matthew Lowry, 33, is expected to plead guilty to all 64 charges brought against him, which includes charges of obstruction of justice, heroin possession, and conversion of property, according to his attorney Robert Bonsib.

Lowry’s theft has caused federal prosecutors to drop charges against at least 28 defendants in drug cases. An additional 150 defendants have been notified that Lowry was part of their investigation.

Lowry is facing up to seven years in prison.

    If he were a poor black kid, he would probably be facing 70 years in prison.
