(WASHINGTON) - In the first case of a U.S. police officer charged with aiding ISIS, a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority cop was arrested Wednesday for providing material support to ISIS, according to two law enforcement officials.

Nicholas Young was arrested by the FBI following more than a year of investigation.

According to the officials, there was no evidence of any threat to the D.C. Metro system. Young will make his first appearance in court later Wednesday.

He would be the first police officer in the United States arrested and charged with supporting ISIS.

The Justice Department and law enforcement have been making a concerted effort to identify and arrest individuals sympathetic to ISIS to try to combat lone wolf or ISIS-inspired attacks.

Recent high-profile terrorist attacks in Europe and the United States have been credited to ISIS, either through direct involvement or, as in the US attacks, through inspiration.
