A Boise woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with crimes related to the U.S. Capitol riot.

Yvonne St. Cyr, 53, was arrested by FBI agents with the help of Homeland Security Investigations, officers with the Boise Police Department, and members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

She was arrested on a warrant issued by the United States Court District of Columbia related to crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6.

St. Cyr posted a Facebook live on Jan. 6 from what appears to be the U.S. Capitol.

St. Cyr was taken into custody without incident. More information will be released once the complaint against her is unsealed.

The Boise woman was also arrested back in December on a citizen's arrest of trespassing during an incident that led to the cancelation of a Central District Health meeting.  

St. Cyr isn't the only Treasure Valley resident to be accused of crimes related to the insurrection. 

Josiah Colt has been charged with obstruction, aiding and abetting, entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building. 

The 34-year-old Boise man turned himself in to law enforcement on Jan. 12.

You can view the whole list of Capitol breach cases on the United States Attorney's Office, District of Columbia website.
