The Federal Bureau of Investigation(FBI) is searching for a woman who might have stolen a laptop from Nancy Pelosi's office during Capitol Insurrection.

In an arrest warrant filed on Sunday, the Bureau said it is seeking a woman, part of the mob that breached the US Capitol, who may have stolen a laptop computer or hard drive from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office. 

The FBI said that it is searching the women on several charges related to the Capitol Breach, including entering a restricted building, disrupting the orderly conduct of government, and engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct.

The FBI is currently investigating a claim that Riley June Williams, a Pennsylvania woman, stole a laptop or hard drive from the speaker's office with the intent of funneling the device to Russia's foreign intelligence agency.

The complaint was filed by an identified witness said to be her ex-boyfriend former romantic partner. He has accused that she "intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia's foreign intelligence service."

He said that the plan failed but she "still has the computer device or destroyed it." 

The FBI said, "This matter remains under investigation."

More than 125 people have been arrested so far in connection to the Capitol Inserruction on January sixth.
