CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – A 48-year-old Beeville man has been ordered to federal prison following his conviction for destruction of U.S. government property and possession of a stolen firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

Brian Dale Robinson pleaded guilty Nov. 21, 2019.

Today, U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos ordered Robinson to prison for 33 months to be immediately followed by three years of supervised release. He was further ordered to pay restitution of more than $12,000 to Naval Air Station (NAS) in Corpus Christi. In handing down the sentence, the court noted the dangerousness of Robinson’s conduct.

At the time of his plea, Robinson admitted he knew the firearm in his possession was stolen and he intentionally damaged federal property. He had hit a barricade located at the North gate entrance of NAS - Corpus Christi.

On Oct. 7, 2019, Robinson was at a gas station in Beeville when he spotted a Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck with the engine running. He then entered that vehicle without permission and drove straight to Corpus Christi. There, he approached the NAS and attempted to gain unauthorized access to the base by crashing through the gate. However, the vehicle became inoperable after he hit the barricade.

Robinson exited the pickup truck and fled on foot into the base with a handgun he had stolen from the vehicle and hid next to a dumpster. He was located by base security personnel who immediately arrested him. Robinson claimed he had suicidal thoughts. However, he opted to drop the weapon so no one else would be hurt. Following his arrest, they located an HS Produkt, model XDM-9, 9mm pistol loaded with a full magazine. 

He will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert D. Thorpe Jr. prosecuted the case.
