The Pennsylvania woman accused of directing pro-Trump rioters to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Capitol siege, stealing a laptop in Pelosi’s office, and allegedly trying to send it to Russia has been arrested.

Federal authorities say Riley June Williams, who was on the run with possibly the laptop computer or hard drive, surrendered, according to multiple reports.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office online database of those charged in the Capitol riot listed Williams as being “arrested 1/18/21 in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.”

There were no further details available just before midnight Monday of her arrest, but the “statement of facts” in the case was included.

The FBI tip line for the deadly Capitol insurrection has been flooded with calls since Jan. 6.

One witness who made several calls into the FBI’s tip line was Williams’ former partner, the feds said.

She was directing rioters up a staircase, according to the ex, named “W1” in the criminal complaint. »
