One man was arrested Friday morning at a home in East Naples on charges related to violence at the Capitol earlier this year, according to the FBI.
Christopher Worrell was arrested after FBI agents executed a search and arrest warrant by 6 a.m. in the 200 block of Stanhope Circle, according to the FBI.
FBI agents swarmed the home before making the arrest, according to neighbors in the area. Nick Tullo, who lives across the street, said he heard radios outside around 6 a.m. then heard the FBI announce their presence followed by a loud bang.
Several FBI agents and deputies with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office were still at the home late in the morning and into the afternoon.
According to county records, the home belongs to Trish Priller, an executive assistant at the Naples Daily News. She did not return calls asking for comment.
Law enforcement officers were bagging evidence and working on a laptop set up in the garage while others were inside the house.
Agents carted away bags of evidence and boxes of electronic equipment from the home.
The home is in the Maplewood neighborhood off Radio Road along a street with well-maintained, single family houses. In the driveway of the home was a silver pickup, which law enforcement officers photographed, and a white sedan.
In the immediate aftermath of the violence at the Capitol, another man with a Naples connection was arrested.
Michael Amos, 38, of Naples, was among those arrested the day of the insurrection in Washington D.C., according to court records from the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.
Amos was charged with unlawful entry of public property. He was arrested at about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday at Peace Circle, according to an affidavit.
Peace Circle is a traffic circle, on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, which is constructed around the Peace Monument.
The rioters infiltrated the Capitol as the nation’s lawmakers were affirming President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said the chaotic day included at least 68 arrests, 41 of them on Capitol grounds.
In the two months since the deadly insurrection, agents in all but one of the FBI’s 56 field offices have been drafted to track down those who participated, according to USA Today.
Agents have arrested almost 300 people, but as many as 500 of the 800 who Capitol Police believe entered the Capitol remain at large. The riot claimed five lives and cost millions in damage and cleanup costs in the historic building.
An initial appearance for Worrell within the United States District Court Middle District of Florida was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Friday. The court had not immediately updated information after the court proceeding.
