Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal, 33, faces two counts of felony arson for her role in setting ablaze two Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) vehicles 'following peaceful protests' on May 30.

FBI agents used Instagram posts of the burned cars, along with 500 photos from various photographers, to identify the wording on the woman's shirt: 'KEEP THE IMMIGRANTS, DEPORT THE RACISTS,' the FBI agent explained in his affidavit, VICE reports.

Blumenthal has been charged with arson.

Paul Hetznecker, Blumenthal’s attorney, says he plans to challenge the federal government’s investigative tactics, which he refers to as surveillance.
