Pennsylvania State Police spokesman Ryan Tarkowski said Wednesday that the agency received a tip about 43-year-old Bryan Mol Edinboro, Pennsylvania, around midnight and immediately alerted authorities in Washington.

Tarkowski, says she felt that it was necessary to contact the authorities in Washington on the basis of the information, “so there was clearly a certain degree of threat there is”, but he declined to give any details on the tip, or the nature of the threat.

Police say they seized the weapons of the Mol’ of the vehicle and he was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and unregistered ammunition.

The police in the U.S. capital has received information from the Pennsylvania State Police that a tipster had reported a doctor was traveling to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, armed with weapons and ammunition.

Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said Bryan Moles checked into the hotel early Wednesday, and authorities were working together with hotel security to find the Moles’ car, an assault-style rifle and a pistol. They also found a Mole in the hotel.
