HOUSTON A 37-year-old resident of Houston has entered a guilty plea to federal charges stemming from his escape from custody, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.


Anthony Brown Jr. was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2009 and has been in custody since that time.


On April 8, 2019, Brown was placed in a local half-way house to complete that sentence. A few weeks later, during a regular accountability check, officials discovered he was missing. They discovered he did not have permission to leave or absence himself from custody and opened a fugitive investigation.


Authorities conducted a stop May 3 near Pinemont street on U.S. highway 290 after a vehicle had committed a traffic violation. Brown was driving. They immediately discovered who he was and took him into custody.


During the search of his vehicle, officers found a semi-automatic handgun hidden behind the glove box.


U.S. District Judge Alfred H. Bennett accepted the plea and will set sentencing at  a later date. At that time, Brown faces up to five more years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 maximum fine.


The U.S. Marshals Service, Texas Department of Public Safety and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation and arrest. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joe Porto prosecuted the case.
