An armed Virginia man is the third person arrested near the US Capitol in three days as law enforcement fortifies the area for Inauguration Day.

Guy Berry, 22, was arrested Sunday afternoon for carrying a pistol without a license and possessing a large capacity ammunition feeding device and unregistered ammunition, according to WJLA.

The firearm was “clearly visible in a holster,” as the suspect walked near Washington’s National Mall, police told the local ABC affiliate

Berry was carrying three high-capacity magazines and more than three dozen rounds of unregistered ammo, the report says.

On Saturday, a Connecticut woman was busted after cops say she attempted to bluff her way past a security checkpoint by pretending to be a law enforcement officer.

A day before, another heavily armed Virginia man was charged after trying to drive through a checkpoint with fake inaugural credentials. Police found him in possession of an unregistered gun and more than 500 rounds of ammunition.

The National Mall is closed to the public following the deadly Jan. 6 uprising on Capital Hill, and people have been asked to avoid the area.

Some 25,000 National Guard troops are descending on Washington to shore up the Capitol for President-elect Joe Biden’s swearing in ceremony on Wednesday.

Most of the country’s 50 statehouses have ramped up security in anticipation of violent gatherings of people that falsely believe the election was fraudulently stolen from President Trump.

Gatherings of armed protesters Sunday in Lansing and Columbus were non-violent.
