NEWBURGH, NY — Edward "Jake" Lang, formerly of Narrowsburg, has been arrested by the FBI for his alleged involvement in storming the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6.

The FBI's New York office confirmed the arrest in a statement shared via Twitter.

"Decisions have consequences. Edward Lang is in custody for the ones he made during the assault on our Capitol," Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney Jr. said. "We will continue to track down and hold accountable those who attempt to violently subvert [the Constitution]."

On the day, and in the days following the events on January 6, Lang posted various videos and pictures of himself at the Capitol.
