Ex-Homeland Security Agent Pleads Guilty to Falsifying Investigative Records

A former Homeland Security agent who conspired to falsify investigative records pleaded guilty Thursday, and new evidence suggests he faked the documents at the urging of his supervisor, the Associated Press reports.

Wayne Ball was a special agent with Homeland Security’s Inspector General’s Office in McAllen, Texas, when he falsified records in a probe into a customs officer accused of assisting in drug and human trafficking, the AP wrote.

Prosecutors declined to identify the supervisor but an investigation is underway.

Under a plea agreement, Ball is required to cooperate with the prosecutors.

The case involves Ball backdating falsified reports to show investigative work had been done when it had not.
