According to a federal criminal complaint we received Thursday, suspect Adam Avery Honeycutt of Charlotte County was arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

Federal prosecutors say Honeycutt posted pictures on his Facebook page that show him holding a broken furniture leg with a label that says U.S. Senate while inside the Capitol Building during the riot.

The FBI also found video recordings on his page that shows rioters outside the Capitol confronting police.

In another video, Honeycutt turned the camera on himself and said, “Well, made it in.”

According to State records, Honeycutt owns AAA Bundy’s Bail Bonds in Charlotte Harbor. The FBI says Honeycutt is also known as ‚ÄúBundy.”

He appeared in federal court in Jacksonville Thursday afternoon.

Immediately following the riot at the Capitol, multiple people began sending tips to the FBI, informing the agency Honeycutt shared pictures from inside the building.  

The prosecutor in the case said¬†FBI¬†agents found four guns, marijuana and paraphernalia inside the home where¬†he was staying.¬†They also noted¬†Honeycutt’s three children live at the home, and¬†none of the guns were secured inside.¬†¬†

Honeycutt admitted to smoking marijuana Wednesday, so he will remain behind bars. A judge set a detention hearing for him Tuesday morning.
