Centralia Man Enters Guilty Plea for Role in Breach of U.S. Capital on January 6, 2021

A Centralia man is facing up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court this week to his actions during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

37-year-old Jerod Bargar pleaded guilty to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon.

According to court records Bargar brough a 9-millimeter semi-automatic pistol across state lines and into Washington D.C., where he is not licensed to carry a firearm.

He is accused of taking the firearm to a rally and onto restricted grounds of the U.S. Capitol.

According to a news release the weapon was found on the grounds of the Capitol by law enforcement around 2:30pm on January 6, 2021.

Bargar was later linked to the gun and eventually arrested in August 2022 in Osage Beach.

A sentencing hearing is set for November 3.
