FBI Agent Indicted For Stealing From Jan. 6 Defendant

Former FBI special agent Nicholas Anthony Williams has been indicted on theft charges and stands accused of stealing government and personal property from multiple homes during FBI raids, according to KTRK Houston.

One of Williams’ alleged victims was a Houston college student prosecuted for his participation in the Jan. 6 riots, according to the Houston Chronicle.


Authorities arrested the 36-year-old Williams alleging that from March 2022 to July 2023 he took money or items from multiple homes while executing search warrants as an FBI special agent, according to KTRK.

The American Thinker posted this question on X, “Is the FBI now hiring the scum of the Earth?”

The college student, 27-year-old Alexander Fan, was found guilty of entering and remaining in a room in the Capitol building during the Jan. 6 riots, according to the Chronicle
Fan was accused of climbing into an office through a broken window after his entry was blocked by a closed door. He was sentenced to 12 months’ probation.

The FBI searched Fan’s residence on the day he was arrested. The next day Fan complained that personal property, including $2,500 and some silver bars, were missing from his bedroom. Court records showed the items were not seized as part of the warrant.

Months passed before the FBI announced that Williams had been indicted on theft charges. One of the three charges connects Williams to the theft of the missing items at Fan’s home. The other two victims weren’t named in the indictment.

Williams also faces charges of misusing a government-issued credit card and stealing agency cellphones. Released on bond, he is scheduled to go to trial in Houston on April 1.

Former FBI Agent and whistleblower Steve Friend posted his take on the incident on X. “An @FBI agent was indicted for stealing from a college kid. This is the trash the bureau supplies guns and releases on the public. Defund the FBI.”

American Thinker writer Monica Showalter asks an important question, “Perhaps the most important question is why the bureau was searching this kid’s family home at all on a mere charge of trespassing, and with a friendly, cooperative, give-no-trouble, contrite suspect?”
It’s a good question. According to the Chronicle, Fan was cooperative and “expressed remorse for his actions that day.” He was arrested for trespassing, not insurrection, and did nothing violent.

Fan is a lifelong resident of Houston, not a drifter with bad intentions. He was a part-time student at the University of Houston up until 2020. He works as a server at several restaurants, according to the Chronicle.

The incident only worsens the already tainted reputation of the FBI. It’s not good for America. We need a change.
