A former FBI special agent has been indicted for allegedly stealing over $100,000 in drug money seized during the execution of search warrants, the Justice Department said Thursday.
Scott Bowman, 44, was charged on Wednesday with three counts of conversion of property by a federal employee, three counts of obstruction, two counts of money laundering, one count of falsifying records and one count of witness tampering.
The indictment was unsealed on Thursday and alleges Bowman stole the money between June and August 2014, after the funds were transferred to his custody following the execution of search warrants.
Bowman went on a spending spree with the money, blowing $43,000 for a Dodge Challenger and $27,500 on a Toyota Scion – and nearly $27,000 to outfit the vehicles with new rims, speakers and tires, the indictment alleges.
