Newport News, Virginia-A Virginia man was arrested Wednesday morning when he saw him wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” sweatshirt during a riot in the US Capitol.
The FBI complained on Tuesday with an arrest warrant for Robert Keith. The packer was subsequently arrested by the FBI in Newport News on Wednesday.
According to court documents, his accusation includes a count of deliberate entry and exit of a restricted building or site without legal authority. And the second counts violent invasion and chaotic behavior on the premises of the Capitol.
The packer is being held in the West Tidewater Regional Prison and will appear for the first time at 12:30 pm with Judge Douglas E. Miller.
The packer was identified as a man in a sweatshirt with the words “Camp Auschwitz” during the riot by three sources who spoke to CNN.
“Work Brings Freedom” is written on the bottom of his shirt. This is a rough translation of a German phrase known to appear at the concentration camp gates.
A Virginian who spoke anonymously to CNN described Packer as a longtime extremist with a history of criminal offenses. Another source told CNN that he was a “quirky” character who complained to the government.
