The FBI on Monday searched the Huntington Beach apartment of a well-known far-right activist who initially claimed in a video that he participated in the siege earlier this month at the U.S. Capitol, then backtracked as he became the target of death threats.
Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, confirmed that an FBI SWAT team executed a search warrant around 10 a.m. at the residence of 32-year-old Kristopher Drew Martin on Viewpoint Lane.
One person, whose identity was not released, was at the residence and was cooperative, she said. Undisclosed evidence was seized but no arrests were made.
Photos circulating Monday on social media purported to show members of the SWAT team wearing camouflage and getting out of a pickup truck at the location.
