Arsenal of Guns Found in Hotel Hours Before New Year Celebrations

Police on Sunday arrested a man they say was found with several guns and ammunition in his Hyatt Regency hotel room downtown

- Police say a man found with weapons and ammunition in his downtown Houston hotel room is not believed to have had any intention to carry out a violent act.

When police arrived at the scene, the 21-year-old told police that he had a Ruger 9 mm that may have been stolen. Houston Police responded to the call from Hyatt hotel staff about a drunk man at the hotel bar early Sunday morning before discovering the weapons in a hotel room search. Officers and staff found the weapons and ammo when they went into his room to grab his belongings.

It comes as cities across the USA and around the world step up security for New Year's Eve celebrations. He was then arrested on charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing.

The officer called for an urgent backup around 1:30 a.m. after he encountered the man, whom he described as erratically and belligerent, according to ABC Eyewitness News.
