A man photographed with a Confederate battle flag inside the Capitol building last week amid the deadly insurrection was arrested Thursday in Delaware, according to the New York Times.

The Times identified Kevin Seefried as the man who carried the Confederate flag into the Capitol, after the FBI sought assistance from the public to identify him as part of the agency’s search for individuals “who made unlawful entry” into the Capitol.

In a bulletin, the FBI asked the public to reference photograph #30 when providing tips of the man photographed with the Confederate flag in the Capitol building.

According to the Times, the FBI received more than 126,000 photographic and video tips as of earlier this week. Additionally, agents scrubbed airline passenger manifests and video of air travelers to and from Washington to find potential suspects.

During a Tuesday news conference, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin, who is working with the FBI to apprehend and charge alleged rioters, said at that he expects the number of charges from the Capitol riots to “grow into the hundreds.”
