ATF Disagrees with DOJ Inspector General on Missing Tobacco

The Department of Justice’s inspector general said in a new report that federal agents lost track of 2.1 million cartons of cigarettes and paid an informant more than $4.9 million without requiring him to account for his expenses.

An ATF spokeswoman said that the inspector general’s numbers are inaccurate. She said ATF has determined that 447,218 cartons were unaccounted for, not 2.1 million, after it conducted a more thorough audit of the documentation.
