WASHINGTON — Stewart Rhodes, the founder and leader of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group, has been arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, authorities said Thursday.

Rhodes is the highest-ranking member of an extremist group to be arrested in the deadly siege and it is the first time the Justice Department has brought a seditious conspiracy charge in connection with the attack on the Capitol.

Rhodes is charged along with more than a dozen other members and associates of the Oath Keepers, who authorities say came to Washington intent on stopping the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory.

Rhodes did not enter the Capitol building on Jan. 6 but is accused of helping put into motion the violence that disrupted the certification of the vote. The Oath Keepers case is the largest conspiracy case federal authorities have brought so far over Jan. 6, when thousands of pro-Trump rioters stormed past police barriers and smashed windows, injuring dozens of officers and sending lawmakers running.

Parsippany Gas Stations Targeted In Back-To-Back Armed Robberies: Prosecutor

Two gas stations in Parsippany were targeted in back-to-back robberies, authorities said Tuesday.

The first occurred when a man driving a black or dark gray BMW X5 stopped at Shell on Route 46 East, asked the attendant for $25 worth of gas and pulled a knife when their back was turned around 7:55 p.m. Friday, Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll said.

The vehicle then fled eastbound on Route 46, authorities said.

About 10 minutes later, a man driving a vehicle with the same description stopped at Conoco on Route 46 West and asked for a gas refill before approaching the attendant from behind, wielding a knife and demanding money, Carroll said.

The man pushed the attendant to the ground and drove away, heading west on Route 46, authorities said.

The suspect is described as a Black male with possibly short facial hair, a black jacket, black pants, possibly black gloves and a black facemask and hat.
