WASHINGTON (AP) — A top aide to congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been arrested and charged with thefts that took place in a House office building.
A spokesman for the U.S. Capitol Police says 37-year-old Javier Sanchez of Virginia was arrested last Thursday.
Sanchez is legislative director for Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican. Her office is in the Rayburn office building, where police say the thefts took place.
Sanchez has been charged with theft of money or goods less than $1,000 in value.
A favorite of the tea party movement, Bachmann ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012. She recently announced she will not be seeking another term in the House.
Bachmann’s office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
