The FBI arrested a man at a Queens home on Tuesday night after investigating alleged online threats about an armed caravan heading to the US Capitol, law enforcement sources said.
The man was arrested at the home on a weapons charge, according to a source familiar with the investigation.
Sources said the man was suspected of posting threats about last week’s Capitol siege, though it was determined he did not attend.
The man, identified by ABC NY as Eduardo Florea, was also being probed for possible connections to the far-right Proud Boys.
In addition to federal agents, members of the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau were seen at the home Tuesday night.
