According to the USCP, officers saw an image of a handgun on their x-ray screen after the staffer had left the screening area. Officers caught up to him and arrested him four minutes later, the USCP said.
According to a press release by USCP, the man was identified as 57-year-old Jeffrey Allsbrooks, a staffer with the House Chief Administrative Office. Allbrooks told officers he forgot the gun was in the bag.
“We are charging him with Carrying a Pistol without a License. This case remains under investigation and the Department is looking into what happened before, during and after those four minutes,” the Capitol Police announced.
