FBI Investigates Supervisor, Missing Handgun, After July Theft At Charlotte Hotel

FBI Investigates Supervisor, Missing Handgun, After July Theft At Charlotte Hotel”

An FBI counterterrorism supervisor is under investigation after a night of heavy drinking at a Charlotte hotel led to his gun being stolen, along with a $6,000 Rolex and some cash, according to multiple media outlets.

The New York Daily News reports it is unclear where Manson was keeping his firearm in the hotel, but Federal Bureau of Investigation rules bar agents from leaving their weapons unsecured. The FBI is not disputing the story. He was at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte for a conference this summer when the theft was reported to the local police. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau's headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.'s worldwide 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 a police report. The items were reportedly stolen between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.s global 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.

Police believe the theft happened sometime between 2 and 5am - after the hotel bar was closed. After training, they went out, met some women they claimed were exotic dancers, and drank with them, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Of course, no arrest has been made to date but we're sure the FBI is thoroughly enjoying the investigation into Charlotte's finest establishments.

The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I.

Last year, an assistant special agent in charge was charged with drunken driving and an internal review found he had improperly carried his gun while intoxicated.
