A Virginia couple was busted while allegedly carrying a gun and 200 rounds of ammunition, along with a pitchfork and shovels, ahead of a Trump campaign rally Monday night, authorities said.
John C. Davison, 38, and Vicki M. Davison, 33, were spotted by a Toledo Executive Airport employee walking on the railroad tracks behind the airport in Lake Township, the Sentinel-Tribune reported. The worker said the couple had a backpack and shovels.
Police “converged” on the pair and took them into custody without incident, Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer told the newspaper.
The Davisons allegedly had on them two shovels, a pitchfork and a backpack stuffed with a Glock pistol with an extended magazine, as well as 200 rounds of ammunitions and four tourniquets, Hummer said.
“They were not resisting, but not cooperating,” he said.
Their rented Toyota Camry, which was parked near the airport, also had “several items suspicious in nature” but “nothing illegal,” Hummer added.
Their arrest prompted a two-and-a-half hour lockdown of the Lake Local Schools buildings, as Secret Service and FBI conducted an investigation, Hummer said.
The Davisons, both of Virginia Beach, were each charged with making terrorist threats, carrying a concealed weapon, inducing panic and criminal trespassing.
The Toledo Executive Airport is a reliever airport for the Eugene F. Kranz Toledo Express Airport about 20 miles away, where President Trump held his rally.
