Photo shows guns found in Chicago hotel room booked by Iowa man
CHICAGO - A new photo has been released that shows the guns that were allegedly found to be in the possession of an Iowa man who booked a hotel room overlooking Ohio Street Beach and Navy Pier in downtown Chicago.
Chicago police responded Sunday to the W Hotel and found a semi-automatic rifle with a round in the chamber along with laser-sight attachments, bullet magazines and a .45 caliber handgun, according to prosecutors.
The rifle was not engraved with a serial number.
Police received a tip from a housekeeper who was cleaning the room, saw the guns "laying in the window sill" of the room, and warned officers.
Chicago’s top cop David Brown said the housekeeper likely "prevented a tragedy."
Keegan Casteel, 32, is facing two felony counts of aggravated unlawful use of a loaded weapon without a FOID card, according to police.

Prosecutors say Casteel's wife was in the room when police arrived.
Casteel posted bond on Wednesday and was expected to be released from jail later in the evening.
