Washington Post Employee Arrested for Impersonating ICE Agent

By Faye Higbee

A Washington Post employee, or perhaps now an ex-employee, was arrested at his Gaithersburg, Maryland home for impersonating an ICE agent. Oh, and he had tactical gear, a real badge, and weapons.

Itai Ozderman, 35, was an I.T. Specialist for the Washington Post at the time of his arrest. He was born in Israel, according to the report, but his actual ethnicity was not released. His Gaithersburg home was raided by police on Feb 22, 2017 at around 6 a.m..

He had allegedly been “patrolling,” in Virginia, on more than one occasion, and attempting to enforce laws. He is currently out on bond.

According to ABC7,

When the warrant was served on Feb. 22 at Ozderman’s home in the 100 block of Elmira Lane, court documents say 10 weapons, including handguns, assault rifles, and a shotgun, were recovered.

Sources tell ABC7’s Kevin Lewis that Ozderman impersonated an ICE officer throughout Falls Church, Va. on more than one occasion. According to sources, Ozderman would ‘patrol’ while wearing a bullet proof vest with an ICE placard and a Baltimore County police badge.

During the search, court documents say authorities also recovered body armor, weapon magazines, bullets, a silver Baltimore County police badge and a working police radio.

Motive? Reason? Wannabe cop? Undercover Antifa operative? Maniac? Villain? All sorts of questions are raised by this arrest. There were no details released thus far about the circumstances of how they learned about this guy. The Washington Post has not yet responded to ABC7’s request for a statement.

The Baltimore Police told ABC that he had never been an officer with their department. Theft of badge maybe an additional charge?

Knowing the Washington Post, we may never know the truth, after all, they’re the original ones to use the term “Fake News.”
