Indicted FBI Agent Stole Cash, Silver from Houston Man Prosecuted Over Jan. 6 Riots

A Houston college student prosecuted for his participation in the Jan. 6 riot was one of people robbed by a Houston-based FBI agent, according to newly released court records.

Alexander Fan’s complaint about missing cash and silver helped lead to the January indictment of FBI agent Nicholas Anthony Williams, according to court records.

Fan, 27, was sentenced to 12 months probation in connection to the riot. Fan was found guilty of entering and remaining a room in the Capitol building. He was accused of climbing into an office through a broken window after his entry was blocked by a closed door.

Fan took a picture of himself standing inside an office used by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, according to court documents. He stayed in the office for about 30 minutes before being removed by police.

Fan later gave his phone to the FBI and spoke to agents following his arrest in July 2023, according to court document. He admitted to being in the Capitol, according to court documents

Fan “expressed remorse for his actions that day,” according to court records.

Fan is a life-long Houston resident and was a part-time student at the University of Houston up until 2020. He graduated from Clear Brook High School and works as a server at several restaurants, according to court records.

Fan’s home was searched on the day he was arrested and the next day he reported to the FBI that items, including $2,500 and silvers bars, were missing from his bedroom. The items were not seized as part of the warrant served on his home, according to court records.

Months later, the FBI announced that one of its own agents, Nicholas Anthony Williams, had been indicted on theft charges, over accusations he stole money and property while executing search warrants between March 2022 and July 2023.

One of the three charges related to thefts is over the missing items at Fan’s home.

Williams is also accused of stealing money during searches at homes in March 2022 and January 2023, as well as misusing a government-issued credit card and stealing agency cellphones, according to court records. The other theft victims weren’t named in the indictment.

Fan cooperated in the investigation into Williams, according to court records, which mention the agent’s indictment.

Williams was released on bond following this arrest. His trial is scheduled to begin in Houston on April 1, according to court records.
