On Wednesday evening, Marilyn Hueper posted on Facebook that a dozen armed agents “broke into” her home business on Ocean Drive Loop and handcuffed her and her husband. After the agents searched the house, she seized her phones and laptops, looking for Speaker of the US House Nancy Pelosi’s belongings.
“It was a little alarming when I turned around the corner,” Paul Hueper, Marilyn’s husband, said about the experience. “The first thing the FBI did was start barking out commandments.”
“Ultimately, the couple was handcuffed and interrogated for the better part of three hours before being released. In the end, it was a case of mistaken identity,” Alaska Watchman reported.
“Marilyn said, in the end, agents had mistaken her for another woman,” Alaska Public. Org reported.
In the FB post, Hueper claimed the FBI was seeking “Nancy Pelosi’s laptop,” which was allegedly stolen from the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
The couple told their story to a radio program on Thursday.
FBI agents searched their Krueth Way home near Ocean Drive Loop on April 28. The home also is the location of Homer Inn & Spa. Hueper looked up the photo the FBI said they used, which she said is photograph #225a, on the FBI’s U.S. Capitol Violence Most Wanted website.
According to the interview with the Huepers, the two said the FBI had a court-ordered search warrant for any other related items stolen from the Capitol that day. Still, they did not present the warrant until hours after the search began.
“This simply feels like a violation of those of us that were there that had every right, as President Trump said, to protest peacefully, so that’s what we did,” Paul Hueper said during the interview. “We were not inside the Capitol building. We didn’t condone any of the violence that took place there whatsoever.”
Pelosi’s laptop has been a focus on investigations from the beginning.

DISRUPTING THE PUBLIC OVER PELOSI’S LOST LAPTOP
According to NPR someone had been arrested for that already. From their article in January:
“Authorities have arrested a woman who the FBI says may have stolen a laptop computer or hard drive from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Capitol riot earlier this month. The bureau says it is investigating whether she planned to funnel the device to Russia’s foreign intelligence agency.
Riley June Williams, a Pennsylvania woman, was arrested on Monday in her home state on charges related to the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol, including entering a restricted building, disrupting the orderly conduct of government, and engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct.
However, a complaint/arrest warrant from Sunday says the FBI is investigating a claim that Williams stole a laptop or hard drive from the speaker’s office. According to one witness, described as a former romantic partner of Williams, the accused “intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service.”
People are suspicious about random raids on some people who were in DC on January 6th.

What to make of this allegation…? Capitol Police flying up to Homer to seize not Pelosi's laptop. Wild. pic.twitter.com/RvkT0AWjMI

Yeah, this one is interesting. It could be a blanket warrant for the FBI to use on anyone suspected to have been involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. “And on the off chance the person of interest might have Pelosi’s laptop, we’ll put that in there.”

According to Cornell:
A blanket search warrant is a broad authorization from a judge that allows the police to search multiple areas for evidence without specifying exactly what they are looking for and seize everything found.
The Fourth Amendment provides that “no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” In Stanford v. Texas, the Supreme Court has states that this constitutional requirement protects against “the use of general warrants as instruments of oppression. Therefore, blanket search warrants are unconstitutional, and all evidence obtained under the blanket warrant must be excluded from the trial of the defendant.
