FBI Task Force Officer Sentenced for Making False Statements to a Government Agency


On March 23, 2022, a task force officer with the FBI’s South Sound Gang Taskforce, based in Tacoma, Washington, was sentenced to 24 months of probation and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service for one count of false statements to a government agency.  Evan Brady was sentenced in the Western District of Washington.  According to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, on March 22, 2017, Brady told OIG Special Agents during a voluntary, sworn interview that he did not take missing seized evidentiary items, specifically a laptop computer and cellular telephones, that had been stored at the FBI office in Tacoma, Washington, when he, in fact, did take these items and knew his statements were false at the time he made them. The investigation was conducted by the OIG’s Seattle Domicile Office, with investigative assistance from the OIG’s Dallas Field Office and forensic assistance from the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office.
