Man, 49, arrested over plot to bomb Capitol

A 49-year-old man, Floyd Ray Roseberry, was arrested yesterday and taken into custody for allegedly attempting to bomb United State (US) Capitol Hill.

News4 said FBI agents and members of the sheriff’s office in Cleveland County, North Carolina, went to his home in North Carolina to arrest him.

US Capitol Police chief Tom Manger told reporters Thursday afternoon that the suspect’s motives were not certain.

He said that law enforcement agents negotiated with Roseberry and hoped for a “peaceful resolution” and later on Thursday, the chief of US Capitol Police, Tom Manger, confirmed that he has been taken into custody after surrendering to law enforcement officers.

“Just moments ago, Floyd Roy Roseberry from Grover, North Carolina, was taken into custody without incident,” Manger told reporters.

On whether there were explosives in the suspect’s pick-up truck, the security chief added it was not yet known and the investigation site was still considered to be “an active scene”.

“We still have to search the vehicle and render the vehicle safe,” Manger said, adding that the process could take hours.
