Police: Heavily armed man arrested in Seattle
SEATTLE (AP) -- Police in Seattle are investigating a Nevada man arrested near the University of Washington in a stolen pickup truck filled with weapons, body armor and suspected explosive devices.
University of Washington police chief John Vinson said at a Thursday afternoon news conference that the man was driving a stolen truck out of Montana and had with him a scoped rifle, shotgun and fewer than 10 Molotov cocktails.
The suspect is 21, but Vinson declined to identify him.
"We have no idea what his intentions are," he said. "This is a very active investigation. We're trying to rule out everything at this point."
The man was booked into the King County Jail, after campus police recognized the truck stolen from Montana.
The university police contacted Seattle police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation after searching the vehicle and finding the suspected bombs.
Vinson said the man was not cooperating with police, but said there did not appear to be any threat to the university campus.
