A man staying at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. was arrested early Wednesday after unlicensed weapons and ammunition were found in the car he left with a valet.
The man, Bryan Moles, was arrested in his room at the Washington, D.C., hotel —located about five blocks from the White House— on weapons charges after police found an assault-style weapon and ammunition in his vehicle.
Moles, of Edinboro, Pennsylvania, was charged with possession of an AR-15 and a Glock 23 with no license for either, as well as 90 rounds of ammunition. Police were alerted by a tip that led them to search the vehicle and arrested Moles.
The 43-year-old Moles told police he is a military veteran who was staying at the hotel because he is a supporter of President Donald Trump, reported WJLA-TV.
He reportedly told someone else about the weapons and ammunition in his car, and that person reported Moles to police.
Police found two guns, one of which was sitting out in plain view, and 90 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle.
Moles was charged with possession of firearms without a license and illegal possession of ammunition.
It’s not clear if Moles posed any threat, but a spokesperson for the hotel said the man had been acting suspiciously.
