We're learning more about some suspicious arrests just a few miles away from the site of the Democratic convention.
Here's how Aurora Police Detective Marcus Dudley described the events that happened very early Sunday morning. At about 1:30 a.m. police pulled over a man who was weaving across lanes of traffic. Tharin Gartrell, 28, had a suspended license and he was driving a truck that was rented under someone else's name. The officer found two rifles (one with a scope), boxes of ammunition, a bullet-proof vest, walkie-talkies and methamphetamine. One of the guns had been stolen in Kansas.
Aurora Police called in the FBI, Secret Service and ATF to investigate. A few hours later Gartrell led them to Nathan Johnson, 32, at a hotel. And then Shawn Robert Adolf, 33, at another hotel. "He jumped from the sixth floor window of the hotel to evade arrest and was eventually located in the area," said Det. Dudley. Adolf was treated for relatively minor injuries and then booked on $1,000,000 bond.
Authorities remain mum on whether the men had any plans related to the convention. "We can say this: We're absolutely confident there is no credible threat to the candidate, the Democratic National Convention, or the people of Colorado," said Troy Eid, U.S. Attorney for Colorado.
