Browns Were Duped By “Trojan Horse” Marshals Posing As Supporters

Open door policy allowed officials to walk in and arrest Ed and Elaine Brown

Tax protesters Ed and Elaine Brown were tricked by US Marshals who entered their home yesterday afternoon posing as supporters. The Marshals entered the house at a time when there were no other supporters present and catching the Browns off guard were able to arrest them and remove them from the property.

As we reported earlier this morning, the speculation was that the Browns were infiltrated and tricked before being violently subdued as authorities refuse to provide any details behind their arrest beside the fact that they did not peacefully surrender.

It is still unclear whether any violence was used to apprehend the Browns, all that is known is that they are now in federal custody and have begun serving their 63 month sentence.

Marshals spoke at a press conference at the federal courthouse in Concord NH today.

U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier has commented:

“Ultimately, this open-door policy that they seemed to have which allowed the Browns to have some supporters bring them supplies, welcome followers and even host a picnic –this proved to be their undoing. They invited us in. We escorted them out.”

A small team of marshals pulled off the ruse, arresting the Browns without incident on the couple’s front porch, Monier told local press.

Reports are suggesting that weapons have been seized at the property including “explosive devices”, and “booby traps” which were placed in the woods. Monier added that the Browns may face further charges relating to the weapons.

Monier also added that officials have encountered no retaliatory action from supporters of the Browns as yet, but warned that any further supportive actions at this time could result in federal charges.

Just over two weeks ago Marshals handed out the following flyer to supporters who were attempting to attend one of the Browns’ get togethers.
