SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — An Oakland man has been indicted for trying to support ISIS, according to the Department of Justice.

A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted Amer Sinan Alhaggagi on Thursday with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, United States officials said.

The indictment says the 22-year-old Alhaggagi tried to give services and personnel to the Islamic State of Iraq, Syria, or ISIS between July and Nov. 2016.

“The indictment alleges that the services Alhaggagi attempted to provide included opening social media accounts for the use, benefit, and promotion of ISIS, and that the personnel he provided was himself,” a DOJ press release said.

The indictment also includes three counts of identity theft.

Alhaggagi allegedly used a stolen credit card to make almost $5,000 in fraudulent online purchases from a clothing company, FBI officials said.

In Nov. 2016, Alhaggagi was arrested by the FBI for identity theft, officials said. He was detained after his arrest because a judge said he was a flight risk and a danger to the community.

No arraignment for Alhaggagi has been scheduled.

If convicted, Alhaggagi faces 47 years in prison and $1 million in fines.

According to the document, Alhaggagi “was not currently employed and had spent significant lengths of time in Yemen.”

The government presented evidence to support a no-bail hold including instant messages allegedly sent by Alhaggagi and recordings made of the defendant by undercover agents.

Federal prosecutors feared he would “flee to Mexico and elsewhere.”

According to other court documents, the FBI originally took Alhaggagi into custody last November on identity theft related charges.

He was arrested more than six months ago and there’s not a single photo of him anywhere. More docs here https://www.unitedstatescourts.org/federal/cand/314589/

  1. Never for one minute think the moslems care one bit for our laws. They are COLONISTS and as such are subject to their laws only.

  2. These Muslim fanatics believe, that “allah” will reward them with 72 Virgins & they could Not be more Wrong! Mohammad was a Dyslexic & misread the Quran! It says, “with” 27 Virgins will I reward You, BUTT YOU won’t know if they are Male or female, until You get here SUCKERS”!!!
