William J. Drum, a highly regarded “take-no-prisoners” Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives agent in Philadelphia for 20 years, died last week at age 85, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

Drum started with ATF in 1960 and retired in 1980, the paper reported. He also worked as an investigator in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office and security officer for Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City.

He was a church deacon and lived in Blackwood, N.J., the paper reported.

“He had a stable of informants,” James Kelly, retired ATF agent who worked with Drum told the Daily News. “He was the personification of the U.S. Treasury agent. He was a hard-nosed, take-no-prisoners type of guy who never let up on a case. He worked 12-16 hours a day, seven days a week.”
