Police responded to the Marriot Residence Inn, located at 1775 Andover St, at 3:47 pm after Mr. Bradley called the Tewksbury Police Department to report that he believed his room was being broken into.  Upon arrival, officers cleared the room and observed numerous large capacity firearms and ammunition.  Bradley and Jennings were placed into custody for the illegal weapons.  A search warrant was granted for the hotel room and the couple’s vehicle where more weapons, ammunition, large capacity feeding devices, and infernal machines were discovered.  The Massachusetts State Police, FBI, ATF, and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office were called in to assist with the investigation.

The purpose behind the couple’s Tewksbury stay and unlawful possession of the weapons cache remains under a multi-agency investigation.  Bradley and Jennings are due to be arraigned at Lowell District Court on March 26, 2018.
