FBI raids home of Proud Boys' Philadelphia chapter leader as part of Capitol riot-related probe: report

The vice president the of Philadelphia chapter of the Proud Boys had his home in Newark, Delaware, raided by the FBI this Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Aaron Whallon Wolkind, 37, had his computer, phone, and other electronics seized by federal agents who were looking for evidence related to the alleged planning of the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Although Wolkind was handcuffed during the raid, he was not arrested or charged. According to Wolkind's lawyer, Jonathon Moseley, agents "took all of his computer and computer devices and phones, including an old broken phone."

"The search warrant permitted agents to seize records and information related to people who 'collaborated, conspired, or assisted,' or 'communicated about matters' including their whereabouts, during the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, or the 'legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election,' the filing says. They could also collect 'clothing items' associating Wolkind with the Proud Boys, it said. The offenses cited on the warrant are the same criminal charges Philly Proud Boys president Zach Rehl is facing," the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
