An agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will plead guilty to stealing cash during an Oct. 18 drug raid in suburban Cleveland, Tickle the Wire reported.

Steven Campbell is scheduled to enter a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in Cleveland on Dec. 22 to a theft charge stemming from the raid.

Campbell was part of a task force that raided a home in Lyndhurt, Ohio. The drug suspect told agents he had a couple pounds of marijuana in a blue bag in the garage and between $45,000 and $50,000 under a dresser, Tickle the Wire reported. Campbell, along with at least one DEA, found the cash. Campbell began stuffing fistfuls of cash into his pockets, which an agent witnessed and told another agent.

When confronted, Campbell said the only money he had was his personal money. After resisting a search, Campbell was handcuffed. Before ATF agent Ed Dabkowski could search Campbell, the cash fell out of Campbell’s pockets. It was estimated that he took well in excess of $1,000.
