Top Aide to Michele Bachmann Arrested by Capitol Police

A top aide to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., was arrested by Capitol Police in connection with a string of burglaries in the Rayburn House Office Building, The Hill reported.

Javier Sanchez, 37, of Virginia, is Bachmann's senior legislative assistant. He was charged with Theft II, and police issued the following statement on Monday:

"Earlier this year the United States Capitol Police was apprised of thefts that occurred in the Rayburn House Office Building," spokesperson Shennell Antro told The Hill. "The USCP conducted an investigation and were able to identify a subject. The investigation resulted in the arrest of 37-year-old Javier Sanchez of Virginia."

Sanchez was arrested July 11, Antro said.

Capitol Police did not elaborate on the nature of the burglaries.

Bachmann, who was a 2012 candidate in the Republican presidential primary, announced earlier this year that she would not be seeking another term in the House.

Her campaign remains the subject of a federal ethics probe focused on her former national political director, Guy Short, and her former Iowa campaign chairman, Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, according to The Hill.
