FBI: New London man used Groton Boat laptop to research role in Jan. 6 insurrection

A New London man has been charged with taking part in a pro-Donald Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Jeremy Baouche faces charges including disorderly conduct in a restricted building. He works at Electric Boat in Groton. The FBI says the 26-year-old had used his work computer to search the internet for information about the inauguration, the U.S. Capitol building's layout, guns, rifle scopes, lasers, Trump protests, and the FBI at the Capitol.

He has a security clearance at Electric Boat. Investigators confirmed his presence at the capitol using cell phone records. They also obtained security camera images of Baouche inside the building.

The FBI matched some of the clothes seen in the video to clothes Baouche wears, including a leather jacket they say was similar to one he wore in a social media post in which he was standing near Trump advisor Roger Stone
