ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Newly unsealed court records show why Joint Terrorism Task Force investigators and a judge believed there was probable cause to search the premises of Paul and Marilyn Hueper in Homer in late April. The couple, who own the Homer Inn and Spa, attended the Jan. 6 rally at the nation’s Capitol.

The Huepers have said they did nothing wrong.

In an interview last week, the Huepers told Alaska’s News Source the FBI mistook Marilyn Hueper for a woman who’d entered the Capitol that day, and that during the search, agents said they were looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.
