Man Found With Guns, Ammunition in Houston Hotel Room Ahead of New Year's Eve Celebration

By Michael Hein - December 31, 2017

Houston Police arrested a man on Sunday in the downtown Hyatt Regency hotel after finding a cash of guns and ammunition in his room.

Police arrived on the scene at 1:30 a.m. in response to a call from the hotel about a trespasser. Reports say the man was drunk and belligerent.

When an officer apprehended the suspect, he discovered some ammunition lying around the hotel room. He immediately called for back up. When more police arrived, they found several guns and more ammunition stashed throughout the room. Police say they also checked his vehicle for more illegal weapons, though they didn't say what they found.

The man was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon as well as the original charge for trespassing.

Law enforcement across the country are on high alert this week in preparation for the annual New Year's Eve celebrations. After the string of tragic mass shootings this year, any crowded public venue is a high security risk.
