By Allan Lengel

Details are sketchy, but the Denver Post reports that ATF on Tuesday arrested two Colorado Army National Guard members from Fort Lupton, Colo. on gun charges.

The paper reported that the neither the Guard nor ATF would elaborate on the circumstances surrounding the arrests of Staff Sgt. Eric Lee and Spc. Matthew Laflin.

ATF spokesman Bradley Beyersdorf said it was an ongoing investigation and did not anticipate other arrests, the Denver Post reported.

Lee and Laflin are part-time guardsmen with B Company, 1st Battalion, 157th Infantry Regiment, based in Fort Lupton, the Post reported. Lee was active duty in the Army from May 2004 to August 2009 and joined the National Guard in August 2009.
