Boise woman charged in US Capitol riot speaks out
A Boise woman was arrested Wednesday in connection to the Jan. 6 riot at the United States Capitol Building. She was later released on Friday and spoke with KTVB about why she went to the Capitol.
Yvonne St Cyr, 53, was “taken into custody without incident” by agents with Homeland Security Investigations, officers with the Boise Police Department, and members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
According to the FBI, an arrest warrant was issued for St Cyr in Washington, D.C. in connection to alleged crimes during the riot. St Cyr is charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Both charges are misdemeanors and carry a penalty of up to a year and up to six months incarceration, respectively.
