The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested and charged a Garner, North Carolina man for crimes related to the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Stephen Maury Baker was taken into custody and had his initial court appearance on Monday, according to the FBI.

Baker becomes the third man from the Carolinas charged in connection to the riots. Christopher Raphael Spencer of Pilot Mountain, N.C. was taken into custody without incident by special agents two weeks ago. He was the first person in North Carolina to be charged for his involvement after the deadly acts.

Seven people from the Tar Heel State were initially arrested by Capitol Police after the attack.

Shortly after Spencer was arrested, the FBI used Geolocation to track Easley, South Carolina resident Andrew Hatley and arrested him for knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and obstruction of justice.

Baker faces the same charges as Hatley with the exception of obstruction of justice. The FBI provided no further information on the matter.
