Law enforcement became aware through geolocation data that mobile devices associated with Google accounts associated with the defendants’ names were found in and around the restricted area of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Agents were able to track the Carollos and Vollan’s phone numbers and addresses.

Meanwhile, agents reviewed video footage that appeared to show Vollan and Anthony and Jeremiah Carollo based on comparisons with their driver’s license photos.

In October, an FBI agent interviewed a family member of Vollan and the Carollo brothers’ in Lockport, who identified Vollan Anthony Carollo and said Jeremiah Carollo was at the Caputol during the insurrection.

The agent also interviewed Anthony Carollo himself, and he admitted to traveling to Washington, D.C. with his brother and cousin, a complaint said. Vollan also admitted the same, the agent said.

Jeremiah Carollo also admitted to an FBI agent that he entered the Capitol with his brother and cousin, the complaint said.
