The United States Capitol Police arrested on Jan. 12 an armed woman outside of Congress after she drove from Michigan and told officers she wanted to talk about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Police said the woman identified as Kery Lynn McAttee parked her 2001 Chevrolet Silverado in the “No Parking” zone in front of their headquarters, located near the Capitol, to talk about “information she had about January 6, 2021.”
Police spotted a gun case and the butt of a long gun in the car and McAttee, 58, confirmed she had firearms.
Police recovered an unloaded .22 caliber rifle, a loaded .410 caliber shotgun, and a pellet gun.
Police charged McAttee with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of unregistered ammunition, unlawful possession or transportation of a semi-automatic rifle, and unlawful possession of a firearm misdemeanor.
Police also said that no evidence showed that McAttee came “to do anything except speak with our officers.”
Police did not provide details of their conversation with McAttee as it is now part of an open investigation.
