ARDMORE, Okla. - An indictment unsealed in Carter County accuses a former drug task force investigator of stealing seized drug money and staging a burglary to cover up the theft.

The multicounty grand jury indictment was unsealed Monday in Carter County District Court in Ardmore. It accuses 35-year-old Bryant McIntire of one count of embezzlement for allegedly taking $2,300 in seized drug funds.

McIntire is a former investigator with the District 20 Drug Task Force, which operates in Carter, Love, Johnson and Murray counties.

Attorney General Drew Edmondson says McIntire allegedly seized the money during a 2004 arrest but failed to accurately report the amount or file for forfeiture.

Edmondson says when it came to light that the money wasn't properly processed, McIntire staged and reported a burglary at the task force office.

Edmondson says an investigation into the District 20 Drug Task Force is continuing.

McIntire was actually fired from the department when the task force was dissolved.

McIntire was released on a personal recognizance bond.

    You guys are missing the point, do you think this drug task force is alone in its corruption? They answer to no one, their power is unlimited, they do what they want when they want. You have no rights when it comes to these people, and they are in almost every county. You think this task force is the only corrupt one!!!! They all should be dis-banded until a better solution can be used to investigate drug crimes.

    Mr. McIntire's work ethic and reputation in community shows who he is and as "Concerned" said, the truth will come out.

    McIntire dont have anything to worry about cause he's got buddies in the system that will feel sorry for him and will let him off easy, especially the judge is Judge Walker! That's how things work here in Ardmore!
