    Andrew Wrigley, 50, of Jim Thorpe, posted pictures and videos of himself inside and outside the Capitol during the insurrection, officials said.

    He was arrested Friday by U.S. Marshals after authorities traced his movements through his social media accounts, said Carrie Adamowski, spokesperson for the FBI’s Philadelphia office.

    Wrigley was charged with knowingly entering restricted grounds, violent entry and disorderly conduct, CBS Philadelphia reports.

    Federal officials tracked him down after he posted photos of himself at the Capitol on Facebook, standing with a group of others. “At the protest in DC at the capitol building #stopthesteal,” read one post, which he later deleted, according to Philly.com.
