U.S. law enforcement found bomb-making instructions from home of Proud Boys right-wing extremist group member

(G.N.S) Dt. 30


Bomb-making instructions inside the home of a member of the Proud Boys right-wing extremist group was found by U.S. law enforcement department officers, who was charged with participating in the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol, prosecutors said.
Dominic Pezzola, 43, had “weapons- and bomb-making manuals” on a thumb drive device found within his home near Rochester, New York, prosecutors said in a court filing arguing that he should be jailed pending trial.

More than 135 people have been arrested so far in connection with the rampage by supporters of then-President Donald Trump that interrupted the formal congressional certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory, forced lawmakers to rush to safety and left five people dead including a police officer.

The Justice Department said Pezzola and another member of the Proud Boys, William Pepe, 31, of Beacon, New York, were indicted on charges including conspiracy, civil disorder and unlawfully entering restricted buildings or grounds.
