FBI's Kelley mulls

action on wayward
Las Vegas agents
WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI Director Clarence Kelley is
considering disciplinary action against several Las Vegas agents
accused of violating bureau rules, a spokesman said yesterday.
"Mr. Kelley acknowledges there was an inquiry concerning
certain allegations. The results disclosed no criminality or seri-.
os misconduct, but there were violations of FBI rules and pro-
cedures. The matter is currently under review for whatever
disciplinary action is warranted'" said bureau spokesman Homer
Boynton.
He declined to discuss fur her details.
A SOURCE FAMILIAR WITH THE CASE said a headquar-
ters inspection team was dispatched to the Las Vegas office in
mid-June to investigate 29 allegations.
The list included accusations that some agents were too close
to the gambling community and were accepting free meals and
other favors from casinos, the source said.
There were allegations that "a couple of cases had been
compromised" because of the agents' relationship with gambling
interests, he continued.
"THE 29 ALLEGATIONS were all knocked down. It was all
rumor and innuendo," the source said. "Apparently a degree of
factionalism developed between the older and the younger agents."
He said the allegations originated within the Las Vegas of-
fice which has 49 agents, including the agent in charge, Jack
Keith.
The source said Kelley is considering disciplining six to eight
agents for rules violations involving some sort of "management
deficiencies."
The source was asked whether Keith is among those who
may be disciplined. "That's hard to say, he's probably nervous.
It depends on what extent Kelley considers him to be responsible
for the problem," the source replied.
