CALUMET, Mich. (AP) — An Upper Peninsula man charged in the riot at the U.S. Capitol will remain in custody after FBI agents found guns and ammunition at his home.
A judge noted that he’s a convicted felon who can’t possess firearms or ammunition under state or federal law.
The issue was whether to release Dresch from a Michigan jail while he awaits court hearings in Washington. Defense attorney Elizabeth LaCosse says Dresch has strong political views but isn’t a violent person.
Dresch’s felony conviction was related to a 2013 chase involving police that topped 140 mph.
