Ex-FBI Agent Charged with Rape Hid His Checkered Past

An Alabama state trooper, who came to the state agency after being kicked out of the FBI because of sexual misconduct claims, was arrested last week on charges of raping an 11-year-old girl. 

Christopher Bauer hid his checkered past from the state agency by producing a fake FBI letter that falsely suggested he had a clean record, an Associated Press investigation found.

In late 2018, Bauer was working in the bureau’s New Orleans office when the FBI suspended him without pay and removed his security clearance. Among the allegations were that he had raped a co-worker at knifepoint. 

When Bauer, 41, applied to be a trooper in 2019, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said it found “no derogatory comments were uncovered by former employers” when it conducted a “full and thorough” investigation. 

On his application, Bauer said he was still working at the FBI and never revealed the disciplinary action taken against him.  

Last week, Bauer was charged with sodomy and sexual abuse of a child under 12.  

CBP Busts Woman with $40,000 Worth of Cocaine Hidden in Her Shoes

CBP officers found $40,000 worth of cocaine hidden in the shoes of a Georgia woman who was returning on a flight from Jamaica. 

The officers stopped the 21-year-old woman at Hartsfield-Jacskon Atlanta International Airport on Sunday and found the cocaine in seven pairs of shoes that were stuffed in her bags. 

“Smugglers go through great lengths to conceal drugs from our officers,” Paula Rivera, CBP port director for the Area Port of Atlanta, said in a news release. “Narcotics interdiction remains a priority CBP enforcement mission, one that we take very seriously.”

The woman was turned over to Clayton County police. 

For CBP officers, it was just another day. CBP seizes 3,677 pounds of drugs on an average day.
