SEATTLE (AP) — Police in Seattle are investigating a Nevada man arrested near the University of Washington in a stolen pickup truck filled with weapons, body armor and suspected explosive devices.

University of Washington police Chief John Vinson said at a Thursday afternoon news conference that the man was driving a stolen truck out of Montana and had with him a scoped rifle, shotgun and fewer than 10 Molotov cocktails.

The suspect is 21, but Vinson declined to identify him.

University police first saw a man sleeping in a pickup truck near campus late Tuesday, Vinson said. When they checked the license plate on the truck they didn’t detect anything amiss.

But on Wednesday, they received a report that the truck had been reported stolen out of Montana. Officers were told to watch for the truck and spotted it on Wednesday night, again near campus.
