Very interesting. This happened in Hurst, TX today after a man crashed his truck at about 5 am.
A dry cleaner and former member of the U.S. military has been arrested after suspicious documents and weapons were found in his crashed pickup truck early Tuesday.
Investigators took a look and at first, though the truck contained fake US military documents.
Investigators later determined that the documents found in the truck were fake federal documents used to create false identification cards, not specifically military documents or identification cards.
The owner of the truck, 29-year-old Azeez Ahmed, is a former member of the U.S. military, an American citizen, and the owner of a dry cleaning business in the shopping center. Investigators found the man inside his business, totally unaware of the investigation that had been ongoing outside.
Officials said he was cooperating with investigators before he was placed under arrest by the Hurst Police Department on a charge of document tampering. According to police, Ahmed had been living at the business for several days.
One of the federal agencies involved in the investigation told Richard Winstanley, the assistant chief of the Hurst Police Department, that the man had been a “person of interest” at one time in an investigation, but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Officials did not elaborate on the nature of the previous investigation.
