FBI Collars Mother And Son Duo In Capitol Riot

The Huffington Post reports:

The FBI has arrested a mother-and-son duo accused of entering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol after the pair were successfully identified by online sleuths.

Maryann Mooney-Rondon and Rafael Rondon were arrested on Friday, a law enforcement official told HuffPost.

The two arrestees ― whom online sleuths working under the #SeditionHunters moniker nicknamed “AirheadLady” and “AirheadBoy” because the pair emerged from the Capitol wearing stolen emergency escape hoods ― will face a host of federal charges.

Law & Crime reports:

A mother-and-son team dubbed “Airheads” by internet sleuths stormed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, and the mom admitted to federal authorities that she helped a man steal a laptop there, according to court papers unsealed on Friday.

“In an approximately 5-second video recorded by a bystander from inside the Speaker’s office conference room, an individual’s arm is shown reaching from outside the frame of the recording toward a laptop and gloves that are sitting on a conference table,” according to the 9-page affidavit.

“The individual consistent with images of MARYANN MOONEY-RONDON captured in CCTV surveillance footage. In the bystander video, a female voice states, ‘Dude, put on gloves,’ while an unidentified male with his back turned to the camera then appears to use the gloves to lift the laptop from the table before the recording ends.”
