PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Federal authorities have arrested a Harrisburg woman who was wanted for her role in the Capitol uprising. Authorities say Riley June Williams allegedly stole a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and was said to have plans to turn it over to Russia.
Police say Williams was arrested somewhere in central Pennsylvania.
Before being captured, police said Williams fled the Harrisburg apartment she shares with her mother. Her father admitted to driving with her to Washington, D.C. for the rally.
Williams was wanted in connection with the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6. Video from inside and outside of the Capitol building shows the young woman helping coordinate the attack.
Federal charging documents say Williams directed rioters up the Capitol stairs with the goal of entering Pelosi’s office.
According to court filings, Williams’ former romantic partner tipped off investigators to her involvement, telling police she “intended to sell the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service.”
