Breaking: A Man Armed With A Koran and Guns Arrested at Gates of Euro Disney


(CNN) A man with two firearms and ammunition was arrested Thursday at the entrance to a hotel near Disneyland Paris, police said.

The 28-year-old Paris resident was arrested as he tried to go through security at Disney’s Hotel New York, just outside the Paris-area amusement park, said Michel Le Prevost, deputy chief of criminal police of the city of Meaux.

The man was also carrying a Quran, Le Prevost said. The man, who was undergoing questioning after the arrest, was not known by police or intelligence services, Le Provost said.

A woman accompanying him was also arrested, Le Prevost said. Information about what accusations she faced wasn’t immediately available.

French media reported that the guns were pistols and that the guns and ammunition were found in a suitcase.

Local police are handling the case as a criminal investigation, and the Paris prosecutor’s counterterrorism department so far is not involved, Le Prevost said.

    I have a suspicion that he might have been up to no good.

      Don’t be silly, he just thought the guns at the target game were defective or rigged to miss so he brought his own so he could win stuffed toys for his kids.

      He was probably running late for his gig at the Pirates Of The Carribean ride. Arrrrrrhg.

      I got his defence strategy worked out. He was there for a tryst with his mistress and she has ISIS hostage fantasies. The guns and koran are props.
