Wesley Allen Beeler was arrested Friday evening after U.S. Capitol police found a loaded handgun and over 500 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle while stopped at a security checkpoint. Following the violent riots on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, security has been heightened in the D.C. area in preparation for the presidential inauguration this Wednesday. When stopped at a Capitol security checkpoint, Beeler attempted to present officers with “unauthorized inauguration credentials.”
