Man Wanted for Allegedly Producing Fake CIA and FBI Badges

Feds are seeking the public’s help to find the counterfeiter.

Those badges were used to attempt to enter restricted U.S. facilities and impersonate federal agents, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE said Thursday that it’s seeking the public’s help to find Romanian national Roberto Craciunica, 34, who is believed to be living in Germany. He is accused of operating a company that manufactured and sold the badges.

Craciunica’s company, Master Equipment, allegedly manufactured and distributed counterfeit U.S. law enforcement badges from January 2010 to September 2015.

Craciunica is wanted on charges related to manufacturing and distributing counterfeit badges, including trafficking in counterfeit goods; smuggling; and possession, sale or transportation of false seals.

Agents seized fake badges and seals purchased from Web domains operated by his company.

He was indicted in October 2015 in the Eastern District of Virginia. The investigation is ongoing, said ICE.
