The FBI is currently seeking the whereabouts of a 22-year-old Pennsylvania woman named Riley June Williams for suspicion of stealing a laptop from Nancy Pelosi’s office during the chaos at the Capitol on January 6th with the intent to ship the computer to a friend in Russia who would then turn it over to Russian intelligence.
The FBI issued an arrest warrant Sunday for Williams that only charges her with illegally entering the Capitol and engaging in disorderly conduct, but they are taking seriously video evidence they say a “former romantic partner” alerted them to showing Williams stealing the laptop. “The caller alleged that she intended to send the device to a friend in Russia who planned to sell it to that country’s foreign intelligence service, but that plan fell through… the FBI says the matter remains under investigation.”
The FBI has charged Riley June Williams in connection to the Capitol riot, saying she told an ex "romantic partner" she intended to ship a computer device from Pelosi's office "to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell [it] to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service."

Williams is apparently on the run, with her mother noting she packed a bag and indicated she would be gone for a few weeks. She has deleted several social media accounts and disconnected her phone, but there is alleged photo and video evidence of her at the Capitol. Below is a video purported to be of the the young woman directing Trump supporters to Pelosi’s office on January 6th. RedState could not independently confirm if Williams is the woman in the video.

According to the caller who tipped off the FBI to the alleged theft, “the transfer of the computer device to Russia fell through for unknown reasons and Williams still has the computer device or destroyed it,” the affidavit stated.
