On Tuesday at a jail in downtown Los Angeles a man was taken into custody when authorities alleged that he tried to enter the detention center using a fake badge, and he was said to be armed with weapons.
Around 10:00 p.m. on March 6, 28-year-old Greg Baghoomian of Sunland reportedly entered the Inmate Reception Center of the Los Angeles Men’s Central Jail and walked up to the desk with a badge. He flashed the identification and tried to enter the facility, but deputies on duty would not allow him to inside before verifying his identity.
Before authorities were able to authenticate his status as an FBI agent as his badge displayed Baghoomian allegedly fled from the Inmate Reception Center and fled in the direction of the Men’s Central Jail across the street. He was apprehended by deputies who were alerted of his impending arrival from authorities at the reception center.
