The owner of a bakery in Fairview was arrested on Tuesday for several offenses related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot including destruction of government property.

The FBI identified 49-year-old Dova Alina Winegeart after three of her friends sent them photos of her at the Capitol holding a long wooden pole with pieces of metal attached which she allegedly used to break a window of the House of Representatives.
