A deceased woman was located in the trunk of the defendants vehicle

 

DALLAS — A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment earlier this month charging Freddie Thomas Gilbert, 33, of Dallas, Texas, with offenses related to the October 29, 2017 shooting of a vehicle in Kaufman County, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

The indictment charges Gilbert with one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and one count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Gilbert will remain in custody pending further court hearings.

            According to the complaint affidavit filed in the case and unsealed today, on October 29, 2017 law enforcement officials in Kaufman County received a call that the driver of a black Hyundai Elantra had fired a round of ammunition at their vehicle in the area of United States Highway 80 and County Road 212 in Kaufman County. Law enforcement officials were able to locate the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. A vehicle pursuit ensued, reaching speeds up to one hundred and ten miles per hour when the vehicle refused to stop. The vehicle eventually became involved in a vehicle accident with another vehicle on the roadway. Gilbert was identified as the driver of the black Hyundai Elantra.

 

Subsequent to Gilbert’s arrest, he told law enforcement officials that the body of a girl was in the trunk of the vehicle. Law enforcement officials found a female victim in the trunk of the vehicle who had a visible gunshot wound to the head. Law enforcement officials also found a Taurus .38 caliber revolver in the side-pocket of the driver’s side door and a detectable amount of cocaine. 

 

Prior to October 29, 2017, Gilbert had been convicted in the state of Louisiana and served jail time for felony drug offenses.

 

An indictment is an accusation by a grand jury and a defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless proven guilty.  If convicted, however, Gilbert faces up to 10 years in federal prison for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in federal prison and a $1,000,000 fine for the possession of a controlled substance count.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Texas Department of Public Safety, Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office and the Forney Police Department conducted the investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney P.J. Meitl is in charge of the prosecution.
