ORLANDO, FLA. – According to court records, a man was arrested in connection with the massive riot in the Capitol on January 6th.
Howard Berton Adams was charged and arrested on Wednesday for mayhem, intimidation, use of force, entering buildings and grounds, and disorderly conduct, although the allegations against him have yet to come to light. Adams’ trial took place at 13:30.
Prosecutors said they wanted Adams, who was cooperating in the investigation, not to be detained. Adams was released on the condition that he travel between Washington DC and Central Florida and surrender his passport and gun. Adams’ unsecured bail was set at $25,000.
Adams could face 28 years in prison and a $900,000 fine if found guilty of the alleged charges after investigations.
On January 6, a group supporting Donald Trump entered the Capitol building. Four demonstrators and Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick were killed in the resulting violence. According to what is known, at least 250 people were arrested in connection with the events.
Among those most suspected in the arrests are the Sanford firefighter, the Marion County man previously arrested for attempted murder, and the Proud Boys organizer.
Chris Hadnagy, CEO of Social Engineer L.L.C., says he knows some of the techniques used to track down suspicious people from pictures on social media.
Hadnagy, “When you upload a photo to social media, it asks you if you want to show your location and it shows the location. When you commit a crime or if you have a connection to a crime, it becomes evidence when it is uploaded to the internet. You can’t say the picture is fake, you posted it.”
