A fifth person from the Bay Area has been arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Court records show 52-year-old Kenneth Armstrong, of Pescadero, has been charged with four federal offenses.

Those include trespassing, disorderly conduct, and picketing in a Capitol.

He faces up to one year in jail and a $100,000 fine if convicted.

Court papers say an anonymous tipster contacted the FBI after the riot, and identified Armstrong.

He was arrested Thursday, but is now out on $10,000 bond.
