“We are conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity at that location. We are seeking the whereabouts of Rachel Powell,” the FBI said.
The FBI had previously not formally named Powell as a suspect in the Washington D.C. riot but pictures of her have been shared by the agency as part of ongoing pleas to the public to help identify those responsibly.
She is charged with obstruction, depredation of government property, restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon, restricted building or grounds, and violent entry or disorderly conduct.
An FBI agent’s affidavit on a warrant issued Wednesday said that after a group inside a Capitol room stated they needed a plan, Powell told them they should coordinate together. Her lawyer argues she’s not a flight risk.
Investigators say they were able to identify Powell by her Facebook page in which she is seen with the same earmuffs that she carried on January 6.
Investigators also cited the article in the New Yorker as evidence, as well as cell phone data that showed she was in Washington, D.C.
