A woman from Anchorage, Alaska, claimed she was mistaken by the FBI for a woman who entered the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot and assisted in the theft of a laptop taken from the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The FBI and an agent from the U.S. Capitol Police served a warrant on Wednesday at the home of Paul and Marilyn Hueper, who said the search was related to the siege of Congress.
The couple said federal agents accused her of entering the U.S. Capitol and stealing Pelosi’s laptop and seized some laptops and cellphones from their home, according to an interview with KSRM-AM radio.
“So, I think almost right off the bat, they said, ‘Well, you probably know why we’re here,’ or something like that. It’s like, ‘Yeah, no, not really.’ And they said, ‘Well, we’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.’ And I said, ‘Oh.’”
Hueper said the warrant did not specifically name Pelosi but said she was told by officers they were searching for the laptop.
A spokeswoman for the FBI in Anchorage confirmed to Anchorage Daily News the agency did conduct a “court-authorized law enforcement activity” on April 28 at the address of the Huepers.
“We just can’t discuss the details or existence of an investigation,” FBI spokeswoman Chloe Martin said.
Hueper said agents broke down her door Wednesday morning as she, her husband, and other guests were asleep.
