In the letter
dated
4-04-07,
hand-delivered by the licensee on

the licensee identifieshimself as a private investigator and director of a
licensed
investigative agency. He explains
that
he was
falsely
accused
of
identifying himself
as an FBI
agent
to
relatives
of the
subject
of his
investigation. The licensee was arrested on
7-22-06
by
federal
agents in New York City andcharged with obstruction of justice; these charges were dismissed in SDNY. Identical charges
were
then brought
in
federal
court
in Los

states:
On 24 July 2006., per NYC regulations, in the presence of my
attorney,
I
telephoned
the
NYPD
License Section and advised of my arrest. On 26 July
2006
I also provided a written recap by letter to the NYPD. (Please see copy, attached.)

firearmspermits (if
they
have been suspended).5. The attached copy of the letter dated
