Another Colorado Man, Glenn Wes Lee Croy, Charged In January U.S. Capitol Riot

DENVER (CBS4) - Another Coloradan has been arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 riot at the United States Capitol. Glenn Wes Lee Croy, of Colorado Springs, appeared in a Denver federal courtroom Wednesday afternoon on charges including unlawful entry on restricted buildings or grounds and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

In a federal affidavit filed Wednesday, prosecutors say Croy told a witness "I was there," and sent a picture of himself next to a bust of Abraham Lincoln in the U.S. Capitol. That witness then sent the FBI the picture of Croy, pictured on the right, with another person identified by law enforcement as Terry Lindsey, another Capitol rioter.

A social media search revealed a Twitter reply to Rep. Lauren Boebert, stating "fellow Coloradan we will be there" in response to her Dec. 27, 2020 tweet saying "Who is going to be in DC on January 6th to stand with President Donald Trump?"

Croy's Twitter has subsequently been disabled.

Croy was taken into custody by the FBI Wednesday morning in Colorado Springs. He appeared from federal detention on Wednesday afternoon in front of a U.S. District Court judge through a video teleconference. The judge set his bond at $5,000 and said that terms of his release include he must not leave the state of Colorado and is not to go near any government buildings.

Harlan Boen from Frederick and Stanley Williams from Englewood, both face charges of carrying a prohibited weapon; former Olympic swimmer Klete Keller faces charges of obstructing law enforcement, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; Jeffrey Sabol, a Colorado geophysicist is accused of dragging a police officer down steps to be beaten by an American flag outside the U.S. Capitol; according to an arrest affidavit, Robert Gieswein, 24, "assaulted and intimidated" U.S. Capitol police officers with a baseball bat and a temporary barrier, and sprayed an officer with something from a canister; Patrick Montgomery, of Littleton, is facing charges of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and was seen in photographs posted on Facebook inside the Capitol Building Senate Chambers.
