The senior legislative assistant to Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann is out of a job after being accused of a series of thefts from the Rayburn House Office Building.
The U.S. Capitol Police announced Monday that 37-year-old Javier Sanchez of Virginia was arrested last Thursday and has been charged with misdemeanor Theft II in connection with the string of break-ins reported earlier this year, according to The Hill.
It's unclear exactly what was taken, but various reports indicate Sanchez was initially arrested for stealing money from Bachmann's office.
A spokesman for Bachmann said Sanchez was no longer employed with the office as of last Friday, Politico said.
Fox News reports Sanchez was one of Bachmann's top aides and was often seen with her around the Capitol, including several times last week.
Sanchez is denying the charges, NBC4 reported.
