Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests US Capitol rioter after he is deported from Kenya

"I do not know Mr. Minuta nor was I familiar with his name prior to his being identified in earlier media stories where it was alleged that he was involved in illegal events up at the Capitol", Stone said.

Monday night's filing highlights newly disclosed communications over the messaging app Signal that investigators have found from Stewart Rhodes, the Oath Keepers' founder, and regional Oath Keepers leaders.

The prosecutor made a point, however, to flag Minuta's shout to officers at the entrance of the Capitol: "All that's left is the Second Amendment!"

According to court records, James was arrested Tuesday in Alabama, where prosecutors in a USA attorney's office have requested he be detained pending further legal proceedings in his case.

Roberto Minuta, 36, of Hackettstown, was arrested this past weekend on three federal charges accusing him of obstructing and tampering with Congress and entering a restricted building.

"Simply put, the government's allegations here don't come close to an argument that he should be detained", Gold told Magistrate Judge Andrew E. Krause. The FBI says Minuta, dressed in tactical gear, was among the people who stormed the Capitol. Minuta also was armed when he was arrested at his NY tattoo parlor after his arrest on Saturday, March 6, they said.

Immediately after Sturgeon got to the USA, he was arrested at New York's JFK International Airport on charges including obstruction of justice, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, and assaulting a federal officer.

He is accused of, among other things, picking up a metal police barricade and shoving it into the officers in the company of others.

Surge testing began in south Gloucestershire on Monday where cases of the Manaus variant of coronavirus were discovered. Speaking in the Lords, he said the country "must be on the balls of its feet" to be ready for such "unhelpful news".

However, the United States government requested Kenya to deport Sturgeon where he was put on a March 5 flight back to the US.

"One of the photos posted on or about January 6, 2021 showed Sturgeon among other protesters at the Capitol grounds, wearing the same outfit captured on the [body-worn camera] footage".

Kenyan authorities have deported an American citizen who was hiding in the country following his role in the U.S. Capitol insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Sturgeon told a federal magistrate that he "wasn't trying to flee", adding that he's a frequent traveller.

Sturgeon, a landscaper, was identified from posts on his social media pages, where he also engaged in discussions of the USA riots.

The FBI obtained a Facebook account associated with Sturgeon containing a photo posted on November 28, 2020, showing him carrying a rifle.

Sturgeon flew to Kenya on January 24, one day after paying cash for a one-way ticket after texting others to ask whether he was wanted, prosecutors said in arguing he posed a flight risk, the Post reported.

Chief Magistrate Judge Cheryl Pollak is presiding over Sturgeon's initial appearance, which is ongoing.
