EARLIER POLICE ACTIVITY

This morning at 10:00 Marple Police responded to the Fairfield Inn, 100 Lawrence Rd, for a report of a guest who threatened staff members and refused to leave. The guest allegedly implied that he possessed a license to carry a firearm and refused to leave his room. With the help of hotel staff, several of Marple's finest gained entry into the locked room and took the man into custody without incident. No gun was found, no other guests were in danger, and hotel operations are back to normal. A great effort by responding officers and hotel staff. Charges against the guest are pending as the investigation continues.
