A Pentagon employee has now been accused of operating an illegal dog fighting ring out of his residence.
Frederick D. Moorefield Jr., the Pentagon’s deputy chief information officer, has allegedly been charged with advancing an endeavor involving animal fighting, per the Justice Department.
According to reports, federal authorities searched Moorefield’s home in Arnold, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC, on September 6.
The DOJ provided The Post Millennial with a copy of the criminal complaint in which the 62-year-old described his dogfighting business as “Geehad Kennels.”
He is charged with keeping, raising, or moving animals for use in an endeavor involving animal fighting. Indicted in the scheme is Mario Flythe, 49, of Glen Burnie, Maryland, whose business was known as “Razor Sharp Kennels.”
According to the lawsuit, the two men discussed dogfighting and how to keep it a secret with people across the US using an encrypted messaging app.
The investigation was supported by the FBI, the Office of the Inspector General at the US Department of Agriculture, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the US Marshals Service, the Anne Arundel County Police Department, Anne Arundel County Animal Control, and the Office of the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.
