Two Fort Carson soldiers were arrested over the weekend for alleged firearm violations near downtown bars.
Early Sunday Colorado Springs Police Officers patrolling the area around "Club Syn", formally "13 Pure", saw what they believed to be a fight starting. Officers then say they saw a man go to his car and get an object from the vehicle and then walk back toward the club. The suspect allegedly refused to comply with officers' instructions to stop, so he was detained and a handgun was recovered from his pocket.
The suspect, 28 year old Fort Carson Soldier Terence Henry, was charged with obstruction of a police officer, carrying a concealed weapon, and prohibited use of a weapon. He was released to the custody of the US Army Provost Marshal's Office.
On Saturday, CSPD Officers patrolling the alleys around the 500 block of South Tejon, near "Sodos Nightclub", say they saw two suspicious men walking in the alley going toward the club. The officers stopped one of the males and discovered the suspects allegedly hid two 45 caliber handguns when they saw the officers.
One suspect, 21 year old Fort Carson Soldier Robdrick Robinson, was taken into custody and charged with Possession of a firearm while intoxicated. He was later released to the custody of the US Army Provost Marshal's Office.
