Illegal alien facing state and federal weapons charges


A man who was arrested by Arkansas State Police in May for allegedly having a stolen gun is facing state and federal charges.

Abdallah Imad Ali, 30, was recently indicted for illegal alien in possession of a firearm in the Texarkana Division of the Western District of Arkansas. Ali pleaded not guilty at a hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Bryant earlier this month.

Ali allegedly had a stolen Glock semiautomatic pistol in his possession May 25.


He is facing a charge of theft of a firearm in Miller County. His bail in that case is set at $100,000.

Ali is scheduled for trial in the federal case accusing him of being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm in October. He is set for trial in the theft case in Miller County in January.

Ali is currently being held in the Miller County jail.
