Feds: Woman Posed as FBI Agent, 'Hired' Neighbors

Monday, 29 March 2010 12:37 PM

A 29-year-old Virginia woman pretended to be an FBI agent and conned her neighbors into taking jobs as her assistants, authorities say.

Brenna Reilly of Arlington was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria last week on a charge of impersonating an FBI agent.

Reilly told neighbors in her apartment complex that she was the FBI's forensics director, according to a court affidavit. Two of those neighbors say they agreed to work as Reilly's assistant and put personal information such as their social security numbers on phony job applications.

She gave the assistants tasks that included writing condolence letters to family members of agents killed in the line of duty. But Reilly never was an FBI agent, authorities say.

Reilly's lawyer declined comment.
