A woman from Tacoma was arrested Thursday morning and faces five federal counts of arson in connection to burning five Seattle Police Department vehicles during George Floyd protests.
Margaret Aislinn Channon, 25, was arrested at her Tacoma home for allegedly setting five patrol vehicles on fire that were parked in the area of Sixth and Pine.
U.S. Attorney Brian T. Moran said the 25-year-old was caught on multiple cameras May 30 using an accelerant lit like a blowtorch to start fires in five police vehicles.
I commend the painstaking work of law enforcement using a variety of images to identify the defendant and locate her so she can be held accountable," Moran said.
Investigators review footage from the arsons and videos from a June 5 protest to identify Channon, who had tattoos on her hands and arms that were "clearly visible."
Some of the woman's tattoos linked her to a missing person report in Texas in 2019. Investigators found her social media accounts to confirm her identity and later determine her address in Tacoma.
A search warrant for Channon's Tacoma home confirmed her distinctive tattoos in the videos. Authorities seized clothing and accessories that appear in some of the videos from the arsons.
Channon could spend up to 10 years in prison if she is convicted of arson charges.

But they were mostly peaceful fires.
It should be 10 years per.
Peaceful fires? Peaceful Fires? I did not see them making s’mores!
I was channeling my inner Fake News Media demon....upp, oop.....journalist.
Yeah, bad teeth, all the ink on her body, chewed nails......another good reason to rely on profiling. Her parents must be proud.
The only thing Id hit it with is a rolled-up newspaper.
What a dog.
Notice that these people are not impoverished, or black, or in any way less than a privileged middle class rich bitch. She has nothing to complain about other than her lack of a job and good boy friend.
This fight is with a bunch of 20 somethings who have too much time on their hands and want to get out of mothers basement. BLM be damned. These people don’t care about black lives. They just want to cause damage.
Shes the kind of girl youd like to take home to meet your Mom.
So your Mom could slap the snot out of her.
So they forgot to mention that the charges are Federal because she crossed state lines to commit arson. Actually they didnt forget. They are padding the story.
“SEATTLE A 25-year-old Tacoma woman was arrested Thursday morning on five federal counts of arson after police say she burned five Seattle police vehicles on fire as protests turned violent in downtown Seattle on May 30.”
Notice the difference in a non biased version of the story.
Uh, you sure they don’t mean Tacoma WASHINGTON?
It is called ‘SEATAC’ for a reason.
And you can find a pic of one her dastardly deeds here:
I think you are right. I thought I read someplace that they picked her up in Texas. I must be confusing it with something else. In any case it is federal and there will be at least 5 counts. That is 10years x 5 possible. Here is the official story.
Has Greta Scoldilocks scowled at the arsonists from a week ago yet for killing the planet?
HOW DARE YOU?!!!
I read it to mean they ID some tatoos that traced back to a case she was involved in in Texas a few years ago...
She be White and will get proverbial book thrown at her.
Now if she were Black or a Rich White Antifa clown she would get the keys to the city.
As soon as ‘they’ find a way to infiltrate ANTIFA and get them out of the picture it will be like Vietnam all over.
If you remember the VN ‘demonstrations’ the basic movement was rich White boys, the rebel girls followed (hence the Haight Asbury/summer of love etc) and the Blacks joined in. Campus riots were rampant with Admin Building occupied...Along came ‘Kent State, a Guardsman with an itchy finger, a body and all of a sudden the ‘risk’ of the Rich White Boys was figured in. The takeovers basically stopped and once the DRAFT was lifted, the Rich White Boys - for the most part, went back to class leaving the Blacks and young girls on their own with LEO not ‘afraid’ to act because the RICH boys were gone.
Saw something earlier that the BLM were complaining because the ANTIFA arseholes were acting like it was party time and you know when the little White boys run home to mommys basement that the BLM is open season.
Even if she did not cross State lines, I guarantee some, if not many, of those Antifa/BLM caught in the riots have been coordinating or conspiring in some way with persons across the country. No way did these riots all of a sudden just spring up overnight, in dozens of cities.
If you are expecting the Criminal Justice system to do anything to her, your heart is probably going to get broken. She might, and it is a long might get 30 days probation and adjudication with held.
