A DC woman said an FBI agent contacted her and said investigators were reaching out to the owner of every phone that touched a cell tower near the riot.
WASHINGTON — If you were anywhere near the Capitol on Jan. 6, you may be getting a knock on your door from the FBI.
A D.C. woman said an agent visited her neighbor and called her, telling them investigators were tracking people whose cell phones connected to wi-fi or pinged cell phone towers near the Capitol during the riots.
“They don’t call first, they just come to your house,” Bree Stevens, a legal investigator who lives near Capitol Hill, said.
Stevens said an FBI agent told her they were reaching out to every single person whose cell phone put them near the Capitol during the riots.
