Heavily-armed FBI and local SWAT personnel were searching the Helmetta, New Jersey area for Gregory Yetman, wanted in connection with the January 6 Capitol protests, after Yetman fled during an attempted arrest.

Residents were urged to shelter in place as law enforcement agents and helicopters combed the area.

I walked outside a little bit. I asked the officer. He said go inside,” one neighbor stated.

“We didn’t really know what’s going on and it’s scary. What’s really scary is when it’s in your own backyard.”

Yetman, a U.S. Army veteran, is among thousands of protesters charged by the Biden Department of Justice since 2021.

Many have expressed frustration in the seemingly stark contrasts between the treatment of January 6 protesters, and that of left-wing rioters in 2020, highlighting disparities in charges and police response.

Yetman turned himself in to authorities following a 48-hour manhunt after being accused of pepper-spraying officers during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

He faces several charges, including felonies, and was taken into custody after a $10,000 reward was announced.

Yetman was found to have registered weapons at his home and may have had a plan to flee. He surrendered to authorities after fleeing into a wooded area, and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.
