MONTGOMERY COUNTY FIRE MARSHAL’S OFFICE ASSISTS IN THE INVESTIGATION
Beaumont — We’re learning a federal grand jury has indicted a man from Brooklyn, New York who was found with a multi-caliber rifle and a lot of ammunition, very close to St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica School in Beaumont.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office confirms that Wednesday, the grand jury indicted 26-year-old Ahmed Allam on a federal charge of Possession of a Firearm in a School Zone.
Allam appeared before Magistrate Judge Zach Hawthorn, who ordered him held until a detention hearing.
Beaumont police arrested Allam after stopping him Sunday night for a traffic violation near St. Anthony School. They discovered an AR-15 style rifle, a 30 round magazine and 150 rounds of ammunition in his SUV.
