FBI Wants Accused Capitol Rioter From Wylie to Unlock His Computer With His Face or His PIN – By Scott Gordon (Channel 5 News/DFW) / July 20 2021
Prosecutors want a judge to order Wylie man to unlock his Surface Pro
Arguing it might contain incriminating videos and other information, federal prosecutors are trying to force a Collin County man jailed in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to unlock his computer by either facial recognition or with a code.
Guy Reffitt of Wylie traveled to Washington with a rifle and a handgun to participate in the insurrection, the FBI said. He packed his pistol in a holster and wore a black tactical helmet with a camera attached as he charged at Capitol police officers, according to prosecutors.
Reffitt, a reputed member of the militia group known as “Three Percenters,” was arrested at his Wylie home on Jan. 16.
In a search, agents seized his Surface Pro laptop computer but have been unable to access it.
