A Pennsylvania man was arrested at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., Wednesday after police found two guns and dozens of rounds of ammunition in his car — which he had left with the valet.

Authorities said Bryan Moles was arrested in his room at the hotel and charged with possession of fire arms without a license and illegal possession of ammunitions.

Police said they responded to a tip at 1:50 a.m. and reported seeing a Bushmaster AR-15 assault weapon sitting in the vehicle. They also found a Glock 23 in the glove compartment with 30 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition and 60 rounds of .23 caliber ammunition.

The car was handed over to the hotel valet by Moles.

In a statement, the Secret Service said it joined the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) responding to reports from Trump hotel staff and a concerned citizen about a potential threat.

At no time were any Secret Service protectees at risk, the Secret Service said.

“The Secret Service greatly appreciates its strong partnership with the Metropolitan Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, and all of our law enforcement partners. This investigation is still new and ongoing,” Special Agent in Charge Brian Ebert of the Washington Field Office said in the statement.

The Metropolitan Police Department planned press conference on the arrest for Wednesday at 11 a.m.
