For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA – A three-count indictment was unsealed today charging Jabaar Tindell (41) and Marc Bredell (28), both of Philadelphia, with theft of firearms from a federal firearms licensee, knowing possession of stolen firearms, and, as against Tindell only, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, all in connection with a burglary of Suburban Armory, a federally licensed firearms dealer located at 1008 MacDade Boulevard, Collingdale, Pennsylvania, on May 21, 2015. That burglary resulted in the theft of nineteen firearms the indictment alleges.

“ATF will continue to identify and arrest those individuals who steal firearms from our licensed dealers and funnel them into the hands of criminals who use them to commit violent crimes,” said ATF Special Agent in Charge Sam Rabadi. “We are committed to protecting our communities and business owners.”

If convicted of all counts, Tindell faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, while Bredell faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. Each defendant also faces possible fines, supervised release, and special assessments.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Collingdale Police Department and the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office, Criminal Investigation Division. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Eric A. Boden.

An Indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
