Turned in by a Facebook friend: Connecticut mother, 56, and daughter, 19, are arrested after friend saw photos of them at January 6 riot on social media and told FBI

 A Connecticut mother and her teenage daughter have been arrested for allegedly participating in the January 6 Capitol riot – after a Facebook friend secretly turned them into the FBI.

Court records indicate Jean Lavin, 56, and daughter Carla Krzywicki, 19 were arrested Tuesday after someone sent a screenshot of a Facebook post that featured photos taken as protesters stormed the Capitol. 

Uploaded by Krzywicki, the post included a picture taken inside the Capitol and a selfie of both decked out in Trump winter hats posing outside the building.

'This is history,' the post was captioned; 'We do not go burning down your city and stealing from your business. We come for the government officials that are ruining our country.

'We go straight to the source. Change needs to happen. That is our house and you work for us.'

The posts have since been deleted. 

Using cellphone data, agents were able to identify the duo in videos and photos from their clothing, in addition to a homemade sign that read, 'TRUMP WON' featuring two American flags.

At their home in Canterbury in June, Lavin and Krzywicki both admitted that they'd taken a bus from Norwich to DC when being interviewed by authorities.  


Due to their bus being delayed, the mother and daughter said they missed a speech by then President Donald Trump, records indicate. 

As Congress prepared to officiate Joe Biden's win over Trump in the 2020 presidential election, the pair told authorities they joined a crowd of people walking toward the Capitol building. 

They said they went into the building for about a half hour and left, before returning for another 20 minutes.
