A man at the Trump International Hotel was arrested Wednesday after an assault rifle, a handgun, and 90 rounds of ammo were found in his possession, reports NBC Washington.
Bryan Moles, 43, of Pennsylvania, was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possession of unregistered ammunition after 1 a.m. on Wednesday.
"The officers and our federal partners, and in particular the tipster coming forward, averted a potential disaster in our nation's capital," said D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham.
Secret Service agents and the D.C. Police became aware of Moles after they received tips from the Pennsylvania State Police that a man was travelling to Trump hotel with firearms and ammunition and that he had been making threatening comments. It wasn't immediately clear who the threats were made towards.
One of the firearms was discovered in plain view in the suspect's car in the hotel garage and the other was found in the car's glove compartment.
