Man Arrested Near Capitol After IED, Rifle, Ammunition Allegedly Found in Jeep

Cache: 1.a hiding place, esp. one in the ground, for ammunition, food, treasures.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — "A man is under arrest in Washington after an improvised explosive device, a rifle and some ammunition were allegedly found in his jeep, Capitol Police said Friday.

The man stopped to ask police for directions near the Capitol building at about 11 a.m. EDT Friday, at the intersection of 2nd and Independence Avenue Southeast, according to Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider.

The officer responding noticed a rifle case on the car seat and inspected the jeep, discovering the IED, rifle and ammunition. A canine unit was enlisted to help.

"They've all been rendered safe right now because they're in the custody of Capitol Police," Schneider told reporters at a briefing Friday.

The officer took the unidentified man into custody; the vehicle is still being searched.

Library of Congress employees near where the jeep was stopped were evacuated, and several roads are closed while police continue their investigation.

Schneider said that it wasn't clear what the man intended to do with the cache of weapons."

Sweet moses on a pogo. A rifle and some ammo. A nebulous "IED". In the minds of the dolts calling themselves journalists for the Yellowstream Media, this equals the dreaded, and terrifying, lets not forget terrifying, cache. If it turns out to be nothing more than someone with a muzzleloader and a can of black powder the press won't mention a word of it or bury the news so deep as to make finding it an exercise in futility.

This is what happens when the demonizing of firearms frightens the sheeple into total submission. Law enforcement gets to legitimize their purchases of ridiculously expensive hardware, and for absolutely no justifiable reason at all.

I want to go home at night too, Mr. Constable. Can I then carry the same gear? Say again? I'm not special enough? Ya know, you're correct. Wouldn't be caught dead wearing the badge of traitors.
