Federal law enforcement officials said on Tuesday that after compiling more than 200,000 tips, there have been 400 suspects identified from the Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol.

Of those, 135 people have been arrested, according to Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

Of the 400 suspects, D’Antuono said officials are especially interested in the suspects involved in planting pipe bombs outside the offices of the Democratic and Republican National Committees. D’Antuono said that there is a $75,000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest and prosecution of the suspects.

“As you can imagine, this is an enormous endeavor. But let me assure you, we are up to the task,” D’Antuono said. “This case is challenging. It is complex and it is big — both in size and scope. But at the FBI, we do big, and we do challenging, and we do complex.”
