Summary List Placement

C-SPAN cameras captured the moment the Speaker’s lectern, which was stolen from the US Capitol as part of the January 6 insurrection on Congress, was returned a week later.

Adam Christian Johnson of Parrish, Florida, became one of the most visible faces of the insurrection when he was photographed carrying the lectern out of the Capitol while grinning and waving to the cameras and wearing a Trump beanie hat. 

Johnson has been arrested and charged by federal prosecutors with three felony counts of entering and remaining in a restricted building illegally, theft of US government property, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, The Tampa Bay Times reported on Monday. 

After a court appearance on Monday, he was released on a $25,000 bond pending trial.
