Decatur man arrested after investigation by Decatur PD, FBI

Charges include conspiracy to commit murder, human trafficking

An October investigation by the Decatur Police Department and the FBI resulted in the arrest of a man for charges including conspiracy to commit murder and human trafficking.

During the investigation, agents learned that Brian David Boersma planned to hire two people to have two specific females kidnapped. 

On October 10, 2017, F.B.I. agents, along with the Decatur Police Department, conducted a sting operation in the city of Decatur. During the operation, Boersma met with two undercover agents, posing as “hitmen.” 

Boersma detailed to the undercover agents his plans for the two individuals he wished to be kidnapped. 

After the meeting, Boersma was taken into custody without incident. He was taken to the Morgan County Jail where Detective Burleson charged him with one count of conspiracy to commit murder, one count of conspiracy to commit human trafficking in the first degree, and two counts of conspiracy to commit kidnapping in the first degree. 

Boersma’s bond was set at $500,000.00 per charge for an aggregate bond of $2,000,000.00, which was set by Morgan County Circuit Judge Jennifer Howell. 

Additional evidence was obtained after Boersma’s arrest during the course of the night and this morning. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are expected. The F.B.I. investigation is also ongoing. 

*It should be noted that this was a specific individual and not a “gang,” as has been spread throughout social media. Also, reports that there is a “gang” trafficking in females from this area is also patently false.* 

The Decatur Police Department reminds the public that suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”
