Two People Arrested by FBI for Impersonating Federal Agents
Two men in Washington D.C. were charged with impersonating federal agents after they gave U.S. Secret Service agents gifts, including iPhones, apartments and televisions. 40 year old Arian Taherzadeh and 36 year old Haider Ali were arrested yesterday after multiple federal agencies entered an apartment building in southeast Washington D.C. The pair are accused of posing as employees of the Department of Homeland Security who worked on a special task force related to the Capitol Riots. Prosecutors also allege that they posed as law enforcement officers in order to integrate with legitimate federal agents. Both men also obtained firearms which includes handguns and assault rifles that are used by federal law enforcement agencies.
