Polo Man Charged in Connection to January 6th U.S. Capitol ‘Riot’

(Missourinet) Another Missouri resident is facing charges in connection with the January sixth U-S Capitol riot last year.

The Kansas City Star reports that 39-year-old Lloyd Cruz Junior from the northwest Missouri town of Polo has been arrested and charged with parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building and entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds. Both charges are misdemeanors. Video footage shows a masked man later identified as Cruz entering the U-S Capitol during the insurrection. His arrest raises the number of Missourians accused of taking part in the January sixth riots to 19.
