Fantastic luck in Denver, Colorado

From the London Daily Mail:

Maid praised as a hero after she alerts authorities to massive weapon stash in Denver hotel close to Coors Field - four days before MLB All-Star game

    • The unnamed maid on Friday reported the find she stumbled upon at the Maven
    • She found 16 long guns, over 1,000 rounds of ammo and body armor
    • On Tuesday Denver hosts the MLB All-Star game at Coors Field, near the hotel
    • Initial fears were that the three men and one woman were planning an attack
    • On Sunday the FBI said they now believe there was no plan to attack the game
    • Instead authorities believe the haul was connected to a drugs deal

A maid at a hotel in Denver has been praised for reporting to authorities a significant weapons stash in one of the rooms, which authorities initially feared could be used for a Vegas-style mass shooting.

Four people have been arrested - with one of the four, a recent divorcee, posting a cryptic Facebook message saying he would 'go out in a big way.'

On Sunday the FBI in Denver said they did not believe the arrests were connected to Tuesday's MLB All-Star game at Coors Field.

'We have no reason to believe this incident was connected to terrorism or a threat directed at the All-Star Game,' they tweeted.

Naaa - the FBI does not want to admit that they had not been aware of the danger so they concocted this phantom drug deal.  Who brings that much firepower to a drug deal?  You want repeat business on both sides, not a confrontational one-time operation. A handgun or two for sure.  Rifles? Not useable for short-range shooting in a hotel room - rifles are for reaching out and touching someone. Handguns are not accurate past ten feet or so - not useable for sniping.  This was a long-distance shoot.
