NEVADA POLICE FIND FAMILY LIVING IN CHILDREN’S MUSEUM WITH ARSENAL OF WEAPONS
Earlier this month, authorities in Carson City, Nevada made a strange and rather disturbing discovery. They found a family living in the Northern Nevada Children’s Museum. While that is a little strange, police also found guns and other weapons. Namely, an AK-47 rifle, three handguns, a pistol, ammunition, knives and a stun gun, or taser. These are the kinds of weapons that conspiracy nuts tend to have on hand, wherever they are. But why did two parents and their two kids live in a children’s museum? That’s still not clear. But mother was employed there as a manager, the father as a janitor.
POLICE FOUND UNATTENDED TODDLER AND SISTER, WHO SAID THEY LIVED AT CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
The family was keeping the weapons in a storage room. But really, weapons isn’t quite the right word. That is more like an arsenal. Authorities realized something was amiss when someone saw their 2-year-old walking near the museum unsupervised. Evidently, this isn’t the first time police had dealt with the father about his kids being left alone. But when police spoke to the toddler’s older sister, she told them the museum was their address! So authorities did a walk-thru of the children’s museum along with a museum board member and quickly realized people had been living there. They found sleeping bags, mattresses, clothes and food. All in areas where visitors aren’t allowed.
KIDS HAD ACCESS TO ARSENAL OF GUNS AT CHILDREN’S MUSEUM, INCLUDING A SILENCER
Authorities have charged the 41-year-old father with child neglect and endangerment, as well as possession of a suppressor and a short barrel rifle. And yes, a suppressor, or silencer, like an assassin would use. All the weapons were accessible to the children, it seems. The board of directors for the children’s museum have apologized and said they are “shocked and saddened.” Which is no surprise, as many are asking how this could possibly have happened. While the museum will be hiring a new manager, many are still in shock and don’t feel comfortable taking their families there.
