FBI Arrests 2 In Las Vegas Connected To US Capitol Riot

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The FBI has made two arrests in Las Vegas related to the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Sandra Breault, a public affairs officer for FBI in Las Vegas, confirmed the arrests Thursday night but had no other information to share.

Hundreds of supporters of Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building earlier this month to disrupt the final count of electoral votes and the declaration of Joe Biden as the election winner.
