Though the employee’s name and age have yet to be publicly released, Navistar Direct Marketing — a digital and conventional printing company with an office in Frederick — said in a statement Thursday that it had been made aware of the worker’s involvement.
“A Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, during the security breach. After review of the photographic evidence, the employee in question has been terminated for cause,” the company wrote.
“While we support all employees’ right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar,” the company said.
Police said Thursday that 70 people had been arrested on charges related to the siege.
