Intoxicated FBI agent gets his gun stolen by a woman.

Lots of splainin to do the next day in the office. "Yes sir, I was tanked and then got rolled by a chick I picked up in a bar. Oh yah, my Glock is gone too" :

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/09/u...charlotte.html

Part of the story:
WASHINGTON — An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to

Robert Manson, an F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor, reported stolen property, including a gun, in July in Charlotte, N.C. The police report, which denotes that Mr. Manson was incapacitated by alcohol, states that his gun, Rolex watch, and cash were stolen from his room at the Westin Hotel.


The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau’s headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas. An F.B.I. spokesman, Michael P. Kortan, said the incident was the subject of an internal investigation and declined to give additional comment.

Mr. Manson and other senior agents were in Charlotte for training, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the episode. The agents later told the police that they had been drinking with women who said they were exotic dancers, according to a second person who was briefed on the investigation but, like the first, was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

“Investigators determined that the victim, Robert Manson, met a woman in the hotel bar the prior night and took her back to his hotel room,” Robert Tufano, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said in a statement.


At 6:30 the next morning, police officers for the department were called to the hotel. Mr. Manson was incapacitated because of alcohol, according to the police report, which he did not file himself. A fellow agent, Kevin Thuman, gave the report, which says the theft happened from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. The hotel bar closes at 2 a.m.

Related Coverage


The gun was identified in the police report as a Glock 27, a compact model that is easy to conceal. Federal law allows agents to carry concealed weapons while off duty, but not while they are intoxicated. It is unclear where Mr. Manson kept the gun. F.B.I. rules prohibit agents from leaving their guns in unsecure places. Every room in the Westin is equipped with a safe.
No arrests have been made and police officers have not recovered the gun. The report provides scant details and identifies the thief only as “an unknown suspect.” The report does not mention Mr. Manson’s work for the F.B.I. Mr. Tufano said Mr. Manson “was not acting in a law enforcement capacity at the time of the incident.”

A counter-terrorism supervisor...........

GS..... how high?
This is what Justice appears to be today, after 8 years of Obama, Holder, Lynch, Comey.

He will have to go to rehab at our expense, and not lose his job.

$6000 Rolex? On an FBI agents salary. I'll bet he paid cash for it, and has no record of the transaction either. Sounds like damn near every insurance claim I ever handled when I worked for State Farm.

Rolex watch tells the tale. NO self respecting cop will wear one, except undercover.

It is a sign, either of low character, or, " I CAN BE BOUGHT."
I bet he drives an Audi, Benz or a Caddy, too.
He thinks that he is "Don Johnson, or Tubbs."

This guy was high up in the FBI. Top brass can easily get paid into the six figure range.

LOL. No, back in them days it was slacks, white shirt, tie, and sport coat. Khaki's didn't become standard issue until after I was out of the Insurance game.

A good friend of mine is the Special Agent in Charge of the local FBI office and he makes north of $150K a year. The guy in the story is considerably higher up on the food chain, probably earning over $200K so forking over $6K for a Rolex isn't that big of a deal if he isn't married with children. Should have had the hooker hold his dick all night; hard to swipe yer wallet if both hands are on the tower of power...

No,what he should have done is not drink alcohol,and not fall for women going to his room with him.This guy should be terminated from employment. This is common sense 101 for somebody in that occupation,and that far up the ladder. Imagine if she slipped him scopolamine,she could access all sorts of national interest intell. The Rolex screams "ego". There are government agencies the world over just drooling for rubes this easy. We seriously,need to plug these security holes with concrete.

If true, it reveals this guy for who he is.

In the pic is Seth Rich and so is Wasserman Schultz's Pakistani computer expert, and 3 hrs later, Rich is assassinated.

Manson was in up to his eyeballs with the counter-intell forces from Russia, and he must be a freakin idiot who just takes order from Obama and Hillary, or he is a clever rascal.

This all fortuitous exposure, just when the upper level of Deep State people do not want any such incident.

Manson ALSO lost his service weapons BEFORE, for the first time, that very same night Rich was killed--the night in that photo. Very convenient that his weapons disappear after Rich is killed.

Now he loses his weapons again?

This may be cover for another hit that Manson did, and is using this drunken episode, as a cover to deflect attention form where he actually was, for the 3 hours he was supposedly drunk and rolled by a whore.
I wonder if he knew Scalia?

Lighten up Francis. Scopolamine along with other so called "truth serums" are actually nothing of the sort. They have never been conclusively proven to work in getting people to reveal their inner secrets so rest easy, SPECTRE wasn't making an appearance that night. News flash: not everything you see on TV or in the movies is real, true or accurate...

As to the rest of it? Absolutely agree he shouldn't have drunk to excess but a couple of scoops to get loose before banging the crap out of a hooker? I can see it. Doesn't mean I agree with it and I would expect a guy with his level of responsibility to be a tad more circumspect.

Rolex? Ahh, they aren't what they used to be and I prefer Breitling but ego? How about all the guys who pop for G Series FAL's or Infinity pistols? Or own BMW or Mercedes or other high end vehicles? Egotistical or take pleasure in a fine piece of machinery? For me, with a much reduced income than in the past and a family to maintain, such toys (for that is what they are) are very low down on my list of shit I have to own but once upon a time, they weren't and I enjoyed the hell out of the nice cars, guns and yes, watches. YMMV.

"Lightening up" is exactly what foreign intell agencies want too. Makes their task far easier. I won't lighten up on this particular guy,because he is supposed to be the smartest guy in the room. The one who schools others snares and traps. A guy this stupid is a very east target. Fire him.

Face facts, it never happened...it is Gov't coverup to cover a worse crime.
That gun will be planted on some poor sob at a crime scene so that blame does not fall on the Gov't hit squad.

"Divert attention," and "to hide in plain sight," is the first rule of espionage tradecraft, that I learned at he hand of the master, long ago.

That internal investigation is; "what kind of coffee in the machine today Hank?"
--all bullshit, and they pulled another one over the eyes of the stupid public, to establish an evidence trail for the pending crime, or to have a throwaway to do the hit.
Budget shit, and such office ##'s stuff, affects or makes difficult, just obtaining a throwaway gun so they have to mfg one by usiing believable schemes, by scams such as this. It is complicated working for the Government.
