FBI arrests NYC man after probe into alleged Capitol threats

The FBI arrested a man at a Queens home on Tuesday night after investigating alleged online threats of sending an armed caravan to the US Capitol, law enforcement sources said.

The man, identified as 40-year-old Eduardo Florea, was arrested on a federal weapons charge at the Middle Village home near Elliot Avenue and 76th Street, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

Sources said Florea was suspected of posting online about last week’s Capitol siege, though it was determined he did not attend.

It was not immediately clear if the alleged caravan threat was in connection to the Capitol riot or a separate potentially planned event.

Florea was also being probed for possible connections to the far-right Proud Boys, sources told ABC NY. :rolleyes:

In addition to federal agents, members of the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau were seen at the home Tuesday night.
