The agents arrested Edward Jacob Lang of Tusten, New York, on Saturday afternoon, the source said.
“Decisions and consequences. Edward Lang is in custody for the ones he made during the assault on our Capitol,” FBI New York Assistant Director In Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said in the statement.
“FBI special agents and employees have sworn an oath to support and defend our Nation’s Constitution. We will continue to track down and hold accountable those who attempt to violently subvert it,” Sweeney added, without providing any other detail surrounding the arrest.
It is not clear if Lang has secured legal representation and attempts to reach his family have been unsuccessful.
Lang is expected to appear in federal court in White Plains on Tuesday for his initial appearance, said a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
