Denver’s All-Star Baseball Game could have been a very different scenario. A hotel maid alerted cops after she found over a dozen weapons and 1,000 rounds of ammunition at a hotel just two blocks from the All-Star game’s location in downtown Denver.

A report released Saturday said the housekeeper found the weapons inside one of the guest hotel rooms on the eighth floor of the Maven Hotel. The woman is being hailed as a hero for thwarting what police fear could have been a “Las Vegas-style shooting.”

ABC7 Denver reported cops removed 16 long guns, body armor and ammunition from the room. Frighteningly, the hotel room included a balcony that overlooked Denver’s downtown. Three men and a woman were arrested and charged with weapons possessions in connection with the found cache.

The report notes three of the suspects were previous offenders and three have also been charged with intent to distribute drugs. Sources told the station that one of the suspects had recently posted a cryptic message on Facebook saying he would “go out in a big way.”

Police said in the statement Saturday night, “the investigation and arrests were the results of a tip from the public, serving as an excellent example of the critical role the community plays in public safety.”

The Major League Baseball All-Star game’s “Midsummer Classic” will be held Tuesday at Coors Field in the heart of downtown Denver, Colorado. Denver’s ABC 7 reported SWAT teams responded to the hotel which was closed to the public as investigators combed the scene.

Along with the four suspects arrested Friday night, two vehicles were impounded to be processed for possible evidence. One suspect appeared in court Sunday where a judge set his bond at $50,000 cash. The remaining three are expected to appear in court Monday,

The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) released a statement Sunday saying “we have no reason to believe this incident was connected to terrorism or a threat directed at the All-Star Game. We are not aware of any threat to the All-Star Game events, venues, players, or the community at this time.”

    Why was the bond only set at $50k and just because the FBI “said” they didn’t know of any imminent danger doesn’t mean anything. They ignored calls from people before other massive shootings took place. They are totally incompetent or stupid…or both.

    Cannot trust the FBI anymore. The left has weaponized our institutions and hide everything we need to be aware of. This is the masterplan of the global left. Keep them ignorant and in poverty.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
