HELENA — A Dillon man has been arrested following his travel and alleged entry into the U.S. Capitol during pro-Trump protests on Jan. 6.

Hank Muntzer was arrested Monday by Dillon Police on a federal warrant. He was being held in the Missoula County Detention Facility as of Thursday morning.

Muntzer told the Dillon Tribune on Jan. 13 he went inside the U.S. Capitol Building on the day the violent riot occurred.

The FBI has been asking for tips from the public about attendees at the rally and searching social media for potential suspects regarding the riot. Those riots left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer who died from injuries sustained from the rioters.

Muntzer appeared to have also posted a video of himself at the U.S. Capitol on social media that has since been taken down. He also supplied to the Dillon Tribune a photograph of the protests outside the Capitol on Jan. 6.
