Cranberry man facing charges for alleged role in U.S. Capitol attack

WASHINGTON — A Cranberry man is among the latest person charged for allegedly breaching the United States Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021.

Jordan Bonenberger reportedly turned himself in Friday morning, and later appeared before a federal judge.

Court documents that were unsealed late Friday afternoon claim Bonenberger was caught on camera within the Capitol building.

Witnesses reportedly assisted agents in identifying him. According to the criminal affidavit, one tipster who knew Bonenberger “from college-age” saw videos of him on Snapchat, and provided the FBI with his cell phone number.

Cell records revealed that Bonenberger’s phone was within the Capitol building for about 15 minutes on Jan. 6, according to court documents.

Bonenberger was issued a $10,000 unsecured bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Washington D.C. next week.
