Ty Carroll Mitchum, of Clearwater, Fla., appeared in D.C. Superior Court on Monday, one day after he was arrested outside the Capitol building.

U.S. Capitol Police spokesman Shennell Antrobus says officers confronted the 59-year-old Mitchum because they thought he was acting suspiciously.

Antrobus says Mitchum told police that he had guns in his car and allowed officers to search his vehicle. Police say they found three unregistered firearms, which are illegal in the District of Columbia, and ammunition. The weapons included a shotgun, a pistol and a revolver.

A telephone listing for him appeared disconnected Monday.
