Riley June Williams, the woman wanted for allegedly stealing Nancy Pelosi’s computer from her office during the Capitol riots has reportedly surrendered to police. She was allegedly trying to sell the laptop to Russia.
Williams has been arrested and charged with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as knowingly entering restricted buildings without lawful authority.
According to the affidavit, Williams was identified through a witness to the FBI. The witness, who identified as the woman’s “former romantic partner, claimed Williams stole the device with the intent” to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to “Russia’s foreign intelligence service,” according to the affidavit.
The witness told investigators the apparent deal “fell through” for “unknown reasons” and Williams still “has the computer device or destroyed it.” The claim is currently under investigation.
