The FBI is building its case against an alleged lead of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot one Lego brick at a time.
Investigators seized a “fully constructed US Capitol Lego set” from Robert Morss, 27, along with a notebook containing instructions on how to create a “hometown militia,” court records published by The Smoking Gun revealed.
The suspect allegedly led rioters in “one of the most intense and prolonged clashes” against law enforcement officials trying to contain throngs of rioters, according to the outlet.
Morss was wearing tactical gear and a “MAGA” hat as he led other Donald Trump supporters who were trying to breach the Capitol’s Lower West Terrace, at one point ripping a riot shield from a Metropolitan Police Department officer, prosecutors alleged in court documents cited in the article.
The Pennsylvania man “came prepared for violence and then repeatedly led the violent mob attacking,” prosecutors reportedly wrote.
Morss’ militia to-do list included preparations like “Ambush” and “Battle Drills,” according to documents published in the report.
The reported Army Ranger-turned-substitute teacher was indicted last month for his alleged role in the uprising, and charged with assaulting, resisting or impeding officers, civil disorder, robbery of US property and obstruction, federal records show.
