Man arrested in D.C. with weapons
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Capitol Police arrested a man Friday after an officer spotted a rifle in his car when he stopped the officer to ask for directions two blocks from the Capitol building.
Christopher Shelton Timmons, 27, has been charged with carrying a deadly weapon, having an unregistered firearm and having unregistered ammunition, Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said.
In addition to the rifle — an AK-47 — police found a grenade, a pistol, ammunition, loaded magazines “and several other items of concern to the police” in the Jeep Cherokee he was driving.
