ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Jurors heard from an FBI informant who played a key role in a sting against a policeman accused of attempting to support the Islamic State.
The informant, only if “Mo” is hidden for the public, with a large screen. He testified Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria, that he pretended he was going to be a member of the Islamic State as part of his cover story.
The jury heard conversations between Mo and Nicholas de Jong, who was a police officer with the Washington, D. C. region’s Metro system to his arrest last year.
On the recordings, Young gives Mo advice on traveling undetected and is the expression of paranoia about undercover surveillance.
Young is the first police officer to be charged with an attempt to the support of the Islamic State.
