Western Pa doctor arrested at Trump hotel on gun charges due in court

03 June, 2017

Not long after Dr. Moles checked into Trump International Hotel around 2 a.m. police officers came calling and quickly located the semi-automatic rifle, handgun, and 90 rounds of ammunition for the firearms.

A Pennsylvania man arrested at Trump International Hotel in downtown Washington after a military-style rifle was found in his vehicle is scheduled to face a US magistrate Friday afternoon on a federal firearms charge punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

But Judge Joseph Beshouri ordered on Thursday in D.C. Superior Court that Bryan Moles stay away from the area near the White House and temporarily surrender his firearms, according Jelahn Stewart, spokesperson for the U.S Attorney's Office for D.C. Moles is expected to make an initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.

"Mr. Moles is certainly dealing with demons, pressure, post-traumatic stress from military service...[Moles is] unable to take anti-psychotic medication because of suicidal thoughts, and he self-medicates with marijuana", Beshouri said during Moles' hearing Thursday.

According to documents filed Thursday, Moles left a message for an acquaintance saying he had survival supplies, several cell phones and that his auto resembled Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh "going on a camping trip".

Moles said in the voicemail that he was a "refugee" who wanted to bring down the pharmaceutical industry, and that his vehicle was full of ammunition and survival gear, police said.

According to the criminal complaint, Moles told detectives that before his road trip, he had withdrawn $10,000 "to live the life he always wanted before it was too late".

Moles' Facebook page is sprinkled with comments and photos indicating support for Trump.

She also defended him as "a great kid" and said he had no links to the Islamic State group or other militant groups. Many had serious wounds that will require "very long term care and support in terms of their recovery", Rouse said.

In a court filing, police said that when they spoke with Moles at his room at the Trump hotel officers smelled marijuana and stated that Moles told them he had marijuana and a vaporizer with him, which police recovered.

When a commenter replied, "Trump all the way".

In addition to approving Itoh as the defendant's court-appointed counsel, U.S. Magistrate Judge Robin Meriweather released Moles on the condition that he check in regularly with authorities in Georgia, and undergo a mental health evaluation and treatment. He was not licensed to carry a gun in the District of Columbia.

Newsham declined to comment on what may have motivated Moles.

Lisa DellaRatta, a nurse practitioner in Florida, said she had known him for more than 25 years and used to live with him. She said Moles "cannot be a more standup man".

Moles is a physician who practices emergency medicine at a hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania.

His hometown of Edinboro is about 350 miles from Washington. According to a spokeswoman at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center system said that he was on administrative leave there recently before his arrest on Wednesday.
