Washington Post Employee Arrested for Impersonating ICE Agent, Had Small Arsenal

Curious how this man was arrested back on February 22, but only now do we learn about another potentially dangerous member of the media. Seems to be a lot of this going on these days.

This one is very strange.

The FBI raided the home of a Maryland man last month after he allegedly impersonated an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent while also attempting to enforce criminal laws, Montgomery County District Court documents state.

According to those court documents, Itai Ozderman, 35, impersonated an ICE officer throughout Falls Church, Virginia, on more than one occasion. During those alleged fantasy world skits, police say the five-foot-seven, 160 pound phony federal agent sported a bulletproof vest with an ICE placard and also touted a Baltimore County Police Department badge.

Fantasy world skits? He truly is a member of the fake news media.

On February 22 at around 6 a.m., the FBI, Montgomery County Police SWAT Team and Falls Church Police Department raided Ozderman’s home along the 100 block of Elmira Lane in Gaithersburg.

With a court issued search warrant in hand, police located 10 weapons, including seven handguns, two M4 style assault rifles and a shotgun. Officers say they also found body armor, tactical vests, weapon magazines, bullets, a silver Baltimore County police badge, a working police radio and other assorted items with police insignia.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security and Baltimore County Police Departments state Ozderman is not and has never been an officer with either agency. It’s unclear how the important pieces of police equipment ended up in his possession.

Court records and law enforcement sources confirm Ozderman has worked as an I.T. engineer at The Washington Post for around two years.

“All we have to share is that we are aware of the story and looking into it,” The Washington Post Director of Communications Shani George wrote in an email to ABC7 News on Monday.

The Washington Post has about 800 reporters digging into every detail of President Trump’s life. Maybe they can devote some resources into their dangerous employees.
