    Rafael Rondon, 23, and his mother, Maryann Mooney-Rondon, 55 face multiple charges, including theft of government property, entering and remaining the gallery of Congress, and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building. They also face a felony charge for obstruction of an official proceeding. The FBI shared multiple photos of the Rondons inside the U.S. Capitol on Twitter a month after the insurrection, looking for any information on the pair.

  • A mother and son from Watertown, NY were charged in federal court in Syracuse on Friday for their involvement in the pro-Trump insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Months after sharing photos of the two, the FBI received an electronic tip from someone on May 4 identifying the Rondons, according to documents shared by NBC4 Washington Investigative Reporter Scott MacFarlane.

Footage from inside the Capitol also shows the two carrying two escape hoods, which are meant to be used in an emergency as a “filtering respiratory protective device.”

According to court documents obtained by several news outlets, photos show the Rondons inside House Speak Nancy Pelosi’s office during the insurrection. Both Maryann and Rafael admitted to helping steal the laptop, according to court documents.

Rafael Rondon was also charged on Friday for possessing a sawed-off shotgun, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000.00, and a term of supervised release of up to 3 years according to the Northern District of New York.
