Police reveal which church armed man was looking for to 'fulfill prophecy'

Police: Tony Albert, 33, thought he was in Vidor, Texas


SEGUIN, Texas - Seguin police on Monday revealed that an armed, masked man who told police he was on his way to a church to "fulfill a prophecy" was looking for the First Baptist Church in Vidor, Texas.

Authorities also said that the gun 33-year-old Tony Albert II was armed with when he was arrested Sunday was a 9mm Smith and Wesson MP handgun that was reported stolen from a home in Vidor, Texas. Seguin Police said it's unclear if Albert was involved in the burglary and that the Vidor Police Department is conducting a separate investigation into the incident.

The Texas Rangers, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting Seguin police in their investigation into Albert's intentions that morning.

Police said he was wearing a surgical face shield and tactical-style clothing, and was carrying a loaded gun and extra ammunition early Sunday morning when he was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He is being held on $100,000 bail, according to online records.
