These men were arrested after being found at 3 AM Sunday morning with a loaded rifle claiming they were “hunting.”
According to The Coloradoan, four men were arrested in Larimer County after being caught shining 12 volt spotlights onto private property and shooting a .22 caliber rifle from their vehicle.
When questioned by police as to what they were up to, the men said they were on a late-night hunting trip. A butcher knife was also found in the car.
Nobody had valid hunting licenses, there is currently no open rifle hunting season in this particular area of Colorado, and there was no shot game in their vehicle.
Adu Shid, 30; Ah Nyain, 31; Tun Win, 19; and Ha Ro, 19 have all been charged with possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, hunting from a motor vehicle, hunting on private property and hunting out of season—all misdemeanors, according to an arrest affidavit acquired by The Coloradoan.
This suspicious incident is a bit unnerving and it’s good thing their “hunting” venture didn’t get too out of hand.
The bonds for these men have been paid but their court date is set for Oct. 28.
