Last month the FBI raided the home of Itai Ozderman for allegedly pretending to be an ICE agent.
Ozderman is accused of making ‘patrols’ around his neighborhood in Falls Church, Virginia while wearing a bulletproof vest with both an ICE placard and Baltimore County police badge.
The accused had his home raided on February 22. Authorities found 10 weapons, including handguns, assault rifles, and a shotgun. Additionally they found body armor, weapon magazines, bullets, a silver Baltimore County police badge, and a working police radio.
Ozderman, 35, was born in Israel and now lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland. At the time of his arrest, he was working as an IT engineer for the Washington Post, though it is unclear if he is still with the publication. Ozderman has since been released on bond.
The Baltimore County Police Department confirmed that Ozderman has never worked for them as an officer.
