INDIANAPOLIS–Several Hoosiers could have been involved in the riot that happened at the Capitol building in Washington, DC January 6.
So far, no one from Indiana has been charged, but that could change.
“Like FBI field offices across the country, FBI Indianapolis is receiving tips regarding Hoosiers who may have been at the Capitol building in Washington, DC Jan. 6. Any subjects that are arrested/indicted will be prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC,” said Christine Bavender, Public Affairs Officer at FBI Indianapolis.
The FBI has shared numerous photos of pictures taken from social media posts of people that breached security at the Capitol. On Tuesday afternoon, Steven D’Antuono, the acting director in charge of the Washington D.C. FBI field office, said they have already received more than 100,000 pieces of digital media.
“I want to stress that the FBI has a long memory and a broad reach, agents and our partners are on the streets investigating leads, not only here in the D.C. area but also across the country in FBI’s 56 field offices,” said D’Antuono. “We are scouring everyone for investigative and intelligence leads, and we continue to ask for more.”
