FBI arrests three more Jan 6th suspects in Florida -THREE YEARS LATER on a Saturday!

Like an anniversary present for the Department of Justice, the Tampa field office of the FBI arrested on Saturday, January 6, 2024, three Floridians at a ranch in Groveland.

“The FBI executed three federal arrest warrants early this morning at a ranch in Groveland, Florida, in Lake County,” FBI Tampa announced in a statement. “The subjects taken into custody are January 6 fugitives Jonathan Daniel Pollock, Olivia Michele Pollock, and Joseph Daniel Hutchinson III.”

“The defendants are scheduled to appear in federal court in Ocala, Florida, on Monday, January 8,” the agency said, adding, “No further details concerning their capture are available at this time.”


According to the Associated Press, the trio had been indicted in April 2021.

“Jonathan Pollock had gone into hiding shortly after the attack,” AP reports. “His sister and Hutchinson had been arrested in June 2021 and released on bond, but fled shortly before they were set to go on trial in Washington, D.C., last March.”

The Daily Mail provides more details.

A $30,000 reward for information leading to Jonathan Pollock’s arrest and conviction was offered by the FBI.

“His sister and Hutchinson had been arrested in June 2021 and released on bond, but fled after all removed their ankle monitors in March 2023, shortly before they were set to go on trial in Washington, D.C.,” the outlet reports.

Jonathan Pollack and Hutchinson are on video taken at the Capitol repeatedly punching officers, the 53-page indictment states. Pollack is accused of snatching riot shields from officers and he, along with Hutchinson, allegedly stuck an officer in either the neck or the face with the edge of one.

“Jonathan Pollock grappled with another officer and swung his arm to strike the officer while another rioter simultaneously swung at the officer with a flagpole,” the indictment stated, according to the Daily Mail. “Hutchinson kicked the line of police officers, and Jonathan Pollock seized a riot shield, which he thrust into an officer’s throat and face before thrusting the shield towards another officer.”

Pollack’s sister, Olivia, allegedly punched and elbowed an officer and attempted to grab officers’ batons.

“All are charged with assaulting officers, violent entry into the Capitol and other felonies,” AP reports. “Court records do not list any attorneys for the three.”

On X, many see the latest arrests on January 6 as more proof that the FBI is in the Biden administration’s pocket.

“Took three more political hostages*,” one user corrected for FBI Tampa.

“They want to scare the American people into submission, while our streets, businesses and neighborhoods are being ransacked and destroyed,” fumed another.

“Tyrants gonna tyrant,” stated a third.

“It’s SATURDAY and this is the federal government,” wrote FBI whistleblower Steve Friend. “Why today? Because the FBI is happily aiding the administration with a public show of force on this anniversary. This isn’t an ‘apolitical’ agency.”
