SALT LAKE CITY — Two more Utahns have been arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Jacob Kyle Wiedrich and Janet West Buhler were both arrested late last month in Salt Lake City, according to arrest warrants.

The FBI identified Wiedrich as part of the mob that entered the Capitol after multiple tips from members of the public, according to a statement of facts filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

According to Snapchat videos reviewed by the FBI, Wiedrich was seen wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and shouted, “It’s wartime,” on Capitol grounds.

He was also heard yelling, “We’re not done!” and “We ride for Trump, we die for Trump.”

He was verbally combative with law enforcement, according to the report, and complained about being shot with rubber bullets and tear-gassed.

Security video from inside the Capitol shows Wiedrich following a mob of people who physically pushed through the barricaded U.S. Capitol Police officers.

At one point, he was so confrontational with police officers that another member of the mob physically restrained him, according to court documents.

He then walked down a hallway, which led toward the House wing of the building.

In an interview with law enforcement just six days after the riot, Wiedrich minimized his participation and claimed to only enter approximately 10 feet inside the exterior door before leaving.

Buhler was arrested in Salt Lake City on July 30 after a coworker of one of Buhler’s relatives sent a tip to the FBI that identified her, according to court documents.

The documents allege open-source video put her entering the Senate gallery at 2:44 p.m. on Jan. 6 with Michael Lee Hardin, who was arrested in April for his role in the insurrection. Buhler is Hardin’s stepmother-in-law.

A warrant served on AT&T found Buhler’s cellphone was in and around the Capitol at the time of the riot.

Buhler is the founder of Utah-based clothing shop Anna Rewick, according to the company’s website.

Court documents note both Buhler and Wiedrich are accused of knowingly entering and remaining in a restricted building and disorderly conduct.

They are two of several Utahns arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 insurrection.
