Authorities arrested four individuals on Friday following an employee’s report on a cache of weapons found inside a hotel room in Denver, Colorado.
The weapons were recovered at Maven Hotel which stands a block away from the MLB All-Star Game’s venue on Tuesday, the Coors Field.
According to CNN affiliate KMGH, Denver police worried about a “Las Vegas-style shooting” during the sports event after they were notified about the weapons.
“We have no reason to believe this incident was connected to terrorism or a threat directed at the All-Star Game,” according to the statement released by FBI Denver. “We are not aware of any threat to the All-Star Game events, venues, players, or the community at this time.”
Initially, police officers from Denver came to the Maven Hotel on Friday over a report regarding a suspicious event. In a news release, the police said they were armed by a search warrant and looked through a couple of rooms, impounded two vehicles, and arrested three men and a woman.
Denver Police Chief Paul M. Pazen said the arrests were conducted without any incident.
Arrested were the 42-year[-old Richard Platt; 48-year-old Gabriel Rodriguez; 44-year-old Ricardo Rodriguez; and 43-year-old Kanoelehua Serikawa.
Platt faced charges with investigation of possession of a weapon, a couple of counts of possession of a controlled substance. Denver police said the suspect also had a warrant from a separate jurisdiction.
Gabriel Rodriguez, on the other hand, faces investigation of possession of a weapon charged by a previous offender as well as possession of a controlled substance with the plan to dispense.
Ricardo Rodriguez was also charged with investigation of possession of a weapon by a previous offender while Seriwaka was slammed with investigation of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute charges, CNN reported.
Police said Seriwaka also had a warrant from a separate jurisdiction.
