(TheRedAlertNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: A top Washington, DC police officer in charge of the intelligence branch of the department has been indicted and arrested for allegedly assisting the Proud Boys for several years, including during the run-up to the riot that took place at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.
As reported by NBC News just moments ago in “D.C. police lieutenant indicted with tipping off Proud Boy Enrique Tarrio about arrest“:
“A Metropolitan Police Department lieutenant who supervised the intelligence branch of the Washington, D.C., police was indicted this week, charged with tipping off former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio about a pending warrant for his arrest just ahead of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“Tarrio, the former chair of the Proud Boys, was recently found guilty of seditious conspiracy in connection with the Capitol attack, along with other members of the far-right group. Tarrio was not in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 after his arrest in connection with the burning of a Black Lives Matter banner, as he was banned from the city by a judge the day before the attack.” [emphasis added]
“Shane Lamond, 47, was indicted on one count of obstruction of justice and three counts of making false statements, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said Friday. A federal grand jury charged that Lamond obstructed the investigation into the burning of a Black Lives Matter banner on Dec. 12, 2020, when the Proud Boys were roaming the streets of Washington, D.C., for a pro-Trump event.
“Between July 2019 and January 2021, Tarrio and Lamond communicated “at least 500 times using cloud-based messaging services, including Google Voice, Apple iMessages, and Telegram, an encrypted messaging application,” the indictment said. They sent at least 145 messages using a secret chat function on Telegram that causes messages to disappear, the indictment charged.” [emphasis added]
