Seguin, TX -- In a Face Book post this morning, Sequin Police said they arrested a man on his way to church to "fulfill a prophecy."
On Sunday, December 30, 2018, just before 7:00 am, officers responded to the 2400 W. Kingsbury St. in reference to a male subject carrying what was believed to be a firearm (handgun).
An SPD officer, who was off-duty at the time, was the first on the scene and observed an oddly dressed male wearing tactical style clothing, a surgical face shield, carrying a loaded firearm and extra ammunition.
During the investigation, officers revealed that 33 year old Tony Albert was allegedly en-route to unidentified church to fulfill what he called a prophecy.
As a result of the investigation, Albert was arrested and transported to the Guadalupe County Jail where he was booked in for Possession of Marjuana and Felon in Possession of Firearm.
This morning, the Seguin Police Department is extremely grateful to the citizen who called police. If this subject was not stopped and apprehended the results could have ended differently.
