In the indictment, the FBI notes Ochs admitted in a CNN interview that he entered the building.
"We didn't have to break in, I just walked in and filmed," Ochs told CNN in an interview Wednesday night. "There were thousands of people in there -- they had no control of the situation. I didn't get stopped or questioned."
Ochs graduated from Huntington North High School in 2005.
He founded the Hawaii chapter of the Proud Boys and ran an unsuccessful campaign for the state legislature last year.
He is scheduled to appear in federal court Monday.
