A Texan couple have been arrested in Boston after police found a haul of weapons inside their hotel room including AR-15 and AK-47 rifles along with parking tickets which suggest they were surveilling the site of Saturday’s March for Our Lives protest.
Francho Bradley, 59, and Adrianne Jennings, 40, were arrested at the Marriott Residence Inn in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, on Saturday after he called police to report someone breaking into his room.
He told police he was in his Jeep where he had surveillance video feed from his hotel room linked up to a laptop in his car but that it had suddenly cut out.
He said he worried someone had broken into the room and gotten their hands on his one weapon which he said he had hidden in a drawer.
When police went to the room, they found several assault rifles, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, smoke grenades, military vests and several computers inside.
They also found parking tickets which suggested he had spent the last several days 25 miles away in Cambridge, Boston, near the site of Saturday’s March For Our Lives protest.
He had been given parking tickets on three separate consecutive days for a site just a mile from the protest at Boston Common where 50,000 gathered.
It is also the site of the Boston Marathon finish line. The marathon will take place on April 16.
