Federal agents may be using a Lego
set to build a case against a Pennsylvania
man accused of taking part in the Jan. 6 insurgency at the United States Capitol
Last month, Glenshaw resident Robert Morss
was arrested on assault
, robbery, and other Capitol riot-related charges.
According to court documents obtained by The Smoking Gun
, the feds seized a number of potential pieces of evidence from the 27-year-old suspect's home, including a "Don't Tread on Me" flag, "writings that included 'Step by Step To Create Hometown Militia,'" a military
utility bag, and a "fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set."
It's unclear whether Morss used the Lego version of the Capitol to figure out how to storm the real thing, but photos
obtained by investigators show him allegedly attempting to take a baton, shields, and a flagpole from police
officers and guards.
According to Meaww.com, Morss joined the Army in 2011 and served as an infantryman before enrolling at Penn State
in 2016. He was working as a substitute social studies teacher when he was arrested last month, but has since been fired.
Morss did not respond to Stardia's request for comment immediately.
