QAnon cultist arrested for storming the Capitol after she was identified on social media

An Oregon woman has been arrested and charged for partaking in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, KOIN6 reports.

Lilith Saer, who is a known QAnon adherent, entering and remaining in a restricted building with the intent to impede or disrupt an official proceeding and disorderly or disruptive conduction in the Capitol buildings or Capitol grounds. She was taken into custody on July 7.

Court documents note Saer’s association with QAnon, and point out that she was captured in several videos inside Capitol on Jan. 6, easily identifiable with her blue-dyed hair. The FBI said Saer also goes by the aliases “Drakken Saer” and “Ian Anton Coutu.”

Saer was identified after a photo of her was posted to Twitter on Jan. 17 with the caption, “Portland resident, Patriot Prayer member, & virulently antisemitic Qanon conspiracist Lilith Anton Saer (aka Drakken)…is visible in photos apparently taken inside the US Capitol on 1/6.” The person who posted the photo told the FBI that they knew Saer and was recently in contact with her. Three other people later confirmed to the FBI that Saer was the person seen on photos inside the Capitol.

On Aug. 17, 2019, Saer showed up at a Proud Boys rally in Portland, Oregon. She gave an interview while holding a QAnon flag. Watch the video below:
