A Connecticut mother and her teenage daughter have been arrested for allegedly participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after a Facebook friend secretly turned them into the FBI.

Court records show that Jean Lavin, 56, and daughter Carla Krzywicki, 19, were arrested Tuesday after someone sent a screenshot of a Facebook post containing photos taken when protesters stormed the Capitol.

Uploaded by Krzywicki, the post featured a photo taken inside the Capitol and a selfie of both decked out in Trump winter hats posing outside the building.

“This is history,” the post read; “We’re not going to burn down your town and steal from your company. We come for the government officials who are ruining our country.

“We’re going straight to the source. There must be change. That’s our house and you work for us.’

The messages have since been deleted.

Using cell phone data, officers were able to identify the duo in videos and photos of their clothing, alongside a homemade sign that read “TRUMP WON” with two American flags.
