ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- A federal grand jury has indicted a Virginia man for allegedly pretending he was a CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) officer and getting others to try to rob banks. 

Twenty-eight-year-old Joshua Brady of Petersburg, Va., was indicted Thursday on one count of false impersonation of a government official and three counts of attempted bank robbery. Authorities say he faces up to 20 years in prison for each count if he is convicted of the charges against him.

According to the indictment, Brady, posing as a CIA officer, solicited others to rob banks on behalf of the United States government and in June, he allegedly directed the attempted robbery of a bank in Fairfax County and two banks in Alexandria.
