Terry Lynn Lindsey, 53, of Ohio, United States and Glenn Wes Lee Croy, 45, of Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA and  were among the individuals who illegally entered the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C., USA on January 6, 2021. Their relationship is still unknown but authorities have confirmed that they were Facebook friends.

“Going to D.C. anyone I know going give me a shout out,” Lindsey wrote on Facebook on January 4, 2021. When somebody asked in the comment section when he was traveling, he replied, “Leaving Dayton in the a.m. not ncoic just pax.”

According to a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, “ncoic” is an abbreviation for noncommissioned officer in charge, a leadership position within the military. The agent said “pax” is military slang meaning passenger or person.

On January 5, 2021, Lindsey updated his Facebook friends with his apparent location along the way. He said he “just hit West Virginia,” “just got to Pennsylvania” and was “in Maryland.”

While inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021, Lindsey and Croy took a photo of themselves in front of an Abraham Lincoln bust statue. An FBI special agent filed a criminal complaint against them, which was signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey on February 16, 2021.

On February 17, 2021, an FBI special agent arrested Croy in Colorado Springs. That day, he made his initial court appearance in the U.S. District Court of Colorado by teleconference.

The judge ordered Croy released on a $5,000 unsecured bond and prohibited him from leaving Colorado and from going near any government buildings. He was charged with unlawful entry on restricted buildings or grounds and violent entry and disorderly conduct on U.S. Capitol grounds.

Croy’s preliminary hearing and identity hearing are tentatively scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on March 3, 2021. Prior to the U.S. Capitol riot, he was previously arrested by Colorado Springs Police and was charged with assault, drug possession and marijuana cultivation.
