Darlene Sustrich is the co-owner of a Colorado crane company where the suspect in the deadly Waffle House shooting once worked.

Sustrich says she tried to tell officials to keep 29-year-old Travis Reinking in custody after he was arrested at the White House last year. Reportedly, Reinking had exhibited erratic behavior for years before the shooting. 
  
Twenty-nine-year-old Travis Reinking is accused of opening fire Sunday outside a Waffle House with an AR-15 rifle and then storming the restaurant. Four people were killed and four others were wounded.
  
Sustrich says they received a phone call from the FBI after he allegedly tried to jump the White House fence last July. She says she told them to hold on to him if they could and help him.
