The FBI has announced the arrest of the second Minnesotan in as many days in connection with the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6.
Jonah Westbury, 26, of Lindstrom, is being charged in connection with the deadly rioting at the Capitol, and was arrested by agents Friday morning.
Details of the charges against him remain sealed for now, but are expected to be released following his first court appearance.
It comes a day after the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington D.C. charged Victoria White, 39, of Rochester, in connection with the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.
White was among the crowd of supporters of former President Donald Trump pushing up against Metropolitan police as they attempted to get into the Capitol while senators ratified the results of President Joe Biden's election win, and was among those who got into the Capitol building, where she was arrested.
She was taken into custody by the FBI Thursday morning, and has been charged with entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly or disruptive conduct; violent entry and disorderly conduct; impeding or attempting to impede law enforcement; parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building; and obstruction of justice.
The first Minnesotan to be arrested in connection with Jan. 6 was Jordan Stotts, 31, of Moorhead, who was arrested March 19 and charged with, among other things, entering the restricted Capitol building and disorderly conduct inside the building.
According to the charges, on Jan. 9, a former classmate of Stotts contacted the FBI about posts he made on Facebook that indicated he was involved in the Capitol riot.
