Women Who Bragged About Stealing Pelosi’s Beer Amid Riot Are Nabbed

Cara Hentschel and Mahailya Pryer, a pair of Missouri women, face charges for allegedly participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, according to federal authorities. In newly unsealed documents, the FBI said it had located Hentschel’s Facebook page and found photos of her and Pryer at the U.S. Capitol on the day of the riot. Hentschel had also bragged about her alleged activities at the Capitol earlier this year, the FBI said after obtaining a search warrant to review her Facebook account in July.

In a message on the social network in January, Hentschel allegedly wrote, “we storm peloskis [Pelosi’s] office and took her beer. She drinks Corona.” The women have been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building, and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds with the intent to impede Congress, among other charges.

The FBI says it was also able to obtain a search warrant in July for Hentschel’s Facebook account where she had messaged with several people about what she did while inside the Capitol building.

Neither woman had an attorney listed for this case.

Five other Springfield-area residents, including a teacher, have been charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot. Nationwide, more than 600 people have been charged for the events of that day, which left five people dead and forced lawmakers to seek shelter, including then-Vice President Mike Pence.
