We now have a name attached to the “suspicious” box truck parked downtown that had Tucson police all aflutter on Wednesday. We also have an arrest of said vehicle owner.
Sahuarita resident David J. Mitchell, 50, has been booked on a misdemeanor charge related to his violating a court order that said he couldn’t be around weapons and ammunition. That’s just what authorities found in his truck after hours of evacuations, street closures, bomb-sniffing dogs and bomb robots.
Mitchell’s truck had been parked outside the U.S. Bankruptcy Court downtown, and sparked suspicion. No information has been given to explain why Mitchell had all of those guns and bullets with him, or why he was downtown.
