The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 50 years old, with a medium build and a beard. He was seen on video wearing a baseball cap and a black and gray hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information about the suspect or the pipe bombs is urged to contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or visit the agency’s website at www.fbi.gov
The pipe bombs were discovered the morning of January 6th, shortly before a mob of supporters of former President Donald Trump breached the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. The riot resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police officer. The FBI is investigating the riot as an act of domestic terrorism.
