Jordan Bartels was wanted for allegedly incited violence on Saturday by breaking the windows out of a marked Pittsburgh Police vehicle "against the wishes of peaceful protesters who tried to stop him," officials said, which sparked an increase in violence during the protests.

According to WPXI, a search warrant was served and authorities found several suspicious items inside the home "including 2 firearms, books, gloves, cans of spray paint, indica, and a sweatshirt with white writing on the front was found on top of the dryer in the laundry room."

Bartels faces charges of institutional vandalism, rioting, and reckless endangerment.
