Montana appliance store owner charged in US Capitol breach

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana appliance store owner and supporter of former President Donald Trump was charged Thursday in connection with the breach of the U.S. Capitol while Congress was certifying the Electoral College vote.

Videos taken inside the Capitol and social media posts led to the arrest of Henry Phillip Muntzer, 52, of Dillon, authorities said in court records.

Muntzer is known in Dillon for a mural on the building that houses his appliance store that supports QAnon, according to the Dillon Tribune, which first reported Muntzer’s arrest. Many QAnon followers believe in a baseless, convoluted conspiracy theory in which Trump is the “savior” against Democrats running a satanic pedophile ring.
