Armed man headed to church stopped, after waitress sees something – says something

Armed man headed to church stopped, after waitress sees something – says something
Tony Albert. Harris County, TX

[Ed. – Fortunately, this waitress wasn’t daunted by being of a different race and wondering if she’d be considered a racist for reporting the guy to police.]

A felon illegally carrying a loaded firearm and wearing tactical-style clothing who said he was heading to a nearby Baptist Church to “fulfill a prophecy” was unable to carry out his alleged mission due to the quick actions of a waitress at a Mexican restaurant.

Early Sunday morning, Tony Albert, 33, was arrested and charged with illegally possessing a handgun after Texas police were alerted by Brianna Jimenez, a waitress at Las Mañanitas restaurant in Seguin, Texas.

Though Jimenez didn’t know it then, Albert, who lives over two hours away in Houston, has a lengthy criminal record that includes six arrests over nine years, multiple DUIs, assaulting a family member and disarming a cop, for which he’s currently serving two years probation.
