Today 2 Secret Service Agents Arrested 2022: 2 Arrested for Posing as Federal Agents, Giving Gifts to Secret Service Officers: Court Docs

In one instance, one of the suspects allegedly offered to purchase a $2,000 assault rifle for a Secret Service agent who is assigned to protect the first lady

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged two men they say posed as federal agents and gave free apartments and other gifts to U.S. Secret Service agents, including one who worked on the first lady’s security detail

Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 were taken into custody as more than a dozen FBI agents charged into a luxury apartment building in Southeast Washington on Wednesday evening

The U.S. Secret Service says it is working with other law enforcement agencies in the investigation and is coordinating with the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security

All personnel involved in this matter are on administrative leave and are restricted from accessing Secret Service facilities, equipment, and systems," a statement from the Secret Service said

Prosecutors allege Taherzadeh and Ali had falsely claimed to work for the Department of Homeland Security and on a special task force investigating gangs and violence connected to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. They allege the two posed as law enforcement officers to integrate with actual federal agents

Taherzadeh is accused of providing Secret Service officers and agents with rent-free apartments — including a penthouse worth over $40,000 a year — along with iPhones, surveillance systems, a drone, flat-screen television, a generator, gun case and other policing tools, according to court documents

He also offered to let them use a black GMC SUV that he identified as an “official government vehicle,” prosecutors say. In one instance, Taherzadeh offered to purchase a $2,000 assault rifle for a Secret Service agent who is assigned to protect the first lady, according to the documents
