Denver Police arrested three men and one woman on various gun and drug charges at a downtown Denver hotel near events related to the upcoming Major League Baseball All-Star Game Friday night, police said Saturday With.
The officers responded to a report of a “suspicious incident” at the Maven Hotel, which is one block from Coors Field. They received search warrants for two rooms and found evidence and confiscated two vehicles, the department said.
A spokeswoman for the Denver Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation told NBC News that the agency “has no reason to believe that there is a threat to the MLB All-Star Game.” Coors Field will host the game on Tuesday.
Police said the investigation is active and ongoing, and details of the evidence have not yet been released. The department told CNBC on Sunday that it is unable to provide additional details due to the ongoing investigation, but confirmed that it is working with local and state law enforcement partners in the investigation.
The three men were charged with possession of a gun by a previous offender. Two of the men and the woman were charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of distribution. One of the men and the woman were also wanted with arrest warrants from another jurisdiction.
“The investigations and arrests were the result of a tip-off from the public and serve as a prime example of the critical role the community plays in public safety,” Denver police said in a press release. “DPD encourages residents and visitors to always be aware of their surroundings and to report suspicious or illegal activities to the police immediately.”
Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that the four suspects were arrested at the Maven Hotel on various combinations of charges.
