A patrol officer with Washington D.C.’s regional transit police has become the first law enforcement official to be charged with terrorism in the U.S.

Nicholas Young, 36, of Fairfax, was arrested and charged Wednesday with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist group, ABC News reports. 

The FBI alleges Young purchased gift cards that he thought ISIS would use to buy mobile messaging apps. Turns out, Young was talking to an undercover agent.

Young faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
