Off-duty Virginia police officers arrested for their roles in the U.S. Capitol riot

Jacob Fracker and Thomas Robertson, two off-duty police officers with the city of Rocky Mount, Virginia, are pictured inside the U.S. Capitol during the deadly Jan. 6 riot, in this photo released by the U.S. Department of Justice.
Two Virginia police officers, including one who bragged on social media that he didnít do anything illegal by storming the U.S. Capitol, now face charges from the Department of Justice for their roles in the riot.

Jacob Fracker and Thomas Robertson, who work for the Rocky Mount Police Department, were arrested Wednesday, the Justice Department stated. Both were charged with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.

The two men, who were both off-duty at the time, were photographed inside the Capitol in front of a statue of John Stark, a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. At least one of the men made an obscene gesture in the photo, which was included in the DOJís statement of facts. The men then posted about the riot on social media, the federal agency said.

Robertson, in a statement to Newsweek, admitted he and Fracker sent the photo to their colleagues and that he posted on his own Facebook after it leaked to social media, Vincent Veloz, a special agent with the U.S. Capitol Police Office wrote in a statement with the arrest warrant.
