VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - A Vincennes man will face charges in connection to the January 6 incursion at the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

The FBI says Jonathan Ace Sanders, Sr. was arrested at his home in Vincennes on Tuesday morning.

Sanders was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on capitol grounds.

At 1:00 p.m. on Friday, May 28, Sanders is scheduled to appear in front of a judge in the U.S. District Court District of Columbia.

CBS News said earlier in the month that approximately 440 defendants had been arrested so far in connection to the riot. Prosecutors have said this is likely the most complex investigation ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.

The FBI is still looking for suspects.

We're waking up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. As we head into the afternoon, temperatures won't rise much. Highs are only going to be in the mid to upper 30s. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a chance of flurries overnight. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
