A woman was arrested after police say she drove from Michigan to Washington with guns in her car to talk with authorities about the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.

On Jan. 12, 2022 at 1:40 p.m., a woman parked a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado in the “no parking” zone in front of the U.S. Capitol Police headquarters.

The woman identified herself as 58-year-old Kery Lynn McAttee. She told officers of the U.S. Capitol Police Department that she drove from Michigan and wanted to talk about information she had about Jan. 6, 2021, the day of the Capitol insurrection.

During the conversation, an agent saw a gun case and the butt of a long gun in the Silverado. McAttee confirmed to police there were firearms in her vehicle.

At this time, police have no evidence that McAttee traveled to the Capitol to do anything except to speak with officers. Details about the conversation were not provided by authorities as it is an open investigation.

McAttee has been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of unregistered ammunition, unlawful possession/transportation of a semi-automatic rifle and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm misdemeanor.
