Matthew Mazzocco, Rioter Who Shared Selfie Saying 'The Capital is Ours,' Loses Job

A Texas man accused of being part of the attack on the Capitol has been fired from his job, according to reports.

Matthew Carl Mazzocco, 37, was arrested at his San Antonio home on Sunday, January 18, San Antonio FBI public affairs officer Michelle Lee confirmed to KSAT.

Mazzocco is due to appear in a San Antonio federal court on Tuesday charged with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

Mazzocco was identified on social media after he posted pictures and videos of himself in Washington D.C. during the riot to his personal Facebook page. One picture is a selfie of the suspect just outside the Capitol building along with the caption "the capital is ours!"

The 37-year-old's job was listed as loan officer for NMLS Consumer Access, Synergy One Lending. As reported by Kens 5, Mazzocco is now no longer employed by the company and his profile has been removed from their website.

"For those concerned, we wish to inform you that this individual is no longer employed by our company," a Synergy One Lending spokesperson told Kens 5.

"Part of our core vision for our company is to build and maintain a pristine reputation. We remain steadfast to that enduring objective."

Synergy One Lending has been contacted for further comment.

Mazzocco is just one of dozens of suspects who have been identified after allegedly taking part in the insurrection at the Capitol which left five people dead.

Fellow Texas man Guy Reffitt is also accused of being involved in the January 6 attack and is facing charges of obstruction of justice and unlawful entry.

According to an affidavit signed by FBI special agent Thomas Ryan, Reffitt is a member of the far-right militia group Three Percenters and admitted to his family that he was in Washington D.C. on the day of the attack having "stormed the Capitol."

Authorities added that Reffitt also allegedly threatened his children: "If you turn me in, you're a traitor and you know what happens to traitors...traitors get shot" in the days following the attack.

Elsewhere, a car salesman based in Georgia lost his job after he recorded himself taking part in the siege.

Dominic Box, of Savannah, was fired from Vaden Nissan after the company received several complaints about Box's appearance at the attack which he live-streamed himself at.

"I don't know what you can do to stop a crowd this size with one thing on their mind," he can be heard saying in one Facebook Live video as he makes his way towards the Capitol.

Box, a prominent advocate of the radical QAnon conspiracy theory, also allegedly filmed himself inside the Capitol building.

"Vaden Automotive has separated from Dominic Box. We are no longer affiliated with him in any way and we are not at liberty to discuss employment matters," the company said in a statement.
