The Washington Post reports:
When Jeffrey Sabol returned to his Colorado home after allegedly storming the U.S. Capitol and assaulting two police officers on Jan. 6, he fried his electronic devices in the microwave, destroyed any materials he thought could be “misconstrued as anti-government,” and stashed his guns at a friend’s house, prosecutors said.
Then he traveled to Boston with plans to hop a flight to Switzerland in a plot to avoid extradition, according to court documents.
He never ended up flying to Europe. But thanks to that plan, the 51-year-old geophysicist will now stay in custody until he goes to trial on the eight misdemeanor and felony offenses he faces over his alleged role in the insurrection.
