Border Patrol Agent Accused of Pressuring Teenage Girls for Nude Photos

By Steve Neavling

A Border Patrol agent is accused of posing as a boy online to pressure girls for nude photos and to share sexually explicit messages.

Micah Mardo, 36, faces a federal sex crime after he was arrested last week at a northwest Washington state Border Patrol station, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports

The FBI began investigating after a tipster reported that Mardo’s wife found disturbing images and messages on her husband’s computer.

Investigators said Mardo used the Kik app to contact young teen girls for nude photos. The FBI said he also sent obscene images of himself.

Blaine sector Chief Patrol Agent Brian Martin said the federal agency is cooperating with the FBI probe.

“A vast majority of the men and women employed with our agency meet this high standard day in and day out,” Martin said by email. “As public servants, our agents are rightly held to a higher standard of conduct and are subject to the same laws and rules that apply to private citizens.”

Head of U.S. Border Patrol in Blaine Was Removed from His Position

John C. Bates, the head of the U.S. Border Patrol’s Blaine Sector, was removed from his post Monday after serving for six years as chief patrol agent for the sector, the Bellingham Herald reports.

The reason, however, remained a mystery this morning after authorities declined to say what happened.

Bates was in charge of protecting the borders of Washington, Alaska and Oregon.

He had been with the agency since 1985.

Blaine is the second leader to be removed from the Blaine sector in the last five years. A deputy chief was arrested for having sex with an underage girl, according to the Bellingham Herald.
