Pennsylvania woman accused of stealing laptop from Nancy Pelosi’s office during Capitol riots is in Custody


Riley June Williams / Dauphin County Jail


Federal authorities have said that they have arrested the woman from Pennsylvania who took a laptop  from Nancy Pelosi’s office, on January 6, during the Capitol riot.


As per information received from a Justice Department official, Riley June Williams has been arrested. The FBI warrant says that she has been arrested for illegally entering the Capitol and for disorderly conduct.


There is no mention of her being charged with theft as yet. However, on January 8, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill said that a laptop was taken from the conference room. He also said that the laptop was only used for presentations.


There is also no mention made of her initial appearance at court, nor is there a listing of her attorney as yet.


The FBI said that a caller who said that he was her ex said that her friends had shown him a video of her taking a laptop or hard drive from Pelosi’s office. He also alleged that she had planned to send the laptop to a friend in Russia, who would in turn sell it to the country’s foreign intelligence service.


Purportedly the plan failed and she either had the device with her or she had destroyed it. Federal agents say that the matter is being investigated.


Williams’ mother, who lives with her, told ITV reporters that her daughter had suddenly become extremely interested in President Trump’s political views as well as “far right message boards.”


Her father had traveled with her to Washington on January 6, but they weren’t together that day and met up later to return to home to Harrisburg.


The FBI said that her mother had told local law enforcement that her daughter had packed a bag and left saying that she would be away for a couple of weeks. She had changed her phone number and had deleted many of her social media accounts.
