Report of “Big Ass F—— Gun” in Dorchester Leads to IndictmentPosted: February 6, 2012
A man has been indicted on a federal gun charge after a Dorchester resident reported to police he saw a man in his backyard with a “big ass f—— gun,” according to an ATF affidavit.
Mohamed Ali Bile, a Somalian national who lives in Dorchester, was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in Boston Feb. 2 on a charge of felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. Bile was arrested early in the morning Nov. 5 by Boston police, after he had allegedly been walking around yards in Dorchester with an AK-47 assault rifle.
Boston police initially caught wind of Bile when a Ballou Avenue resident called them at 5:45 a.m. and told them “there was a guy in my yard with a big ass f—— gun,” the affidavit, written by ATF agent Linda Rudnicki, said. The witness said the man with the big ass gun was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and was drinking out of a cup, the affidavit said.
Bile was spotted by police walking down Ballou Avenue toward Norfolk Street, but he immediately fled into a yard and hopped a fence, the affidavit said. He tried to jump a fence between two Jones Street yards, but fell to the ground.
When he was found lying down in the yard, Bile told police he “was taking a nap,” and he had run from police because he thought someone was trying to shoot him, the affidavit said.
The AK-47 and 15 rounds of ammunition were found in a nearby yard, the affidavit said. Boston Police initially charged him with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling and possession of a large-capacity feeding device.
Bile has previously been arrested on Sept. 30 in South Portland, Maine on a criminal threatening charge. He was previously convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in Roxbury District Court in 2004.
He will be arraigned on Valentine’s Day, according to a federal court docket.
