Vincente Rafael Pierre was arraigned in federal court this afternoon on a seven count indictment handed up Tuesday.
[SUPER=03-Charlotte Co./Yesterday]

He was arrested yesterday at a Muslim enclave near the community of Red House.
[SUPER=03-Appomattox Co.]

The indictment charges Pierre with illegally obtaining a pistol from a licensed gun dealer in Spout Springs in 1998. Authorities say Pierre's common-law wife, Traci Elaine Upshur, bought the Llama mini-max 45-caliber pistol for him, because- -as a convicted felon- -he can't legally buy or possess a firearm. Law enforcement sources indicate they have no direct evidence linking Pierre to last week's terrorist attacks, but they say he has ties to Al Fuqra. Al Fuqra is a violent sect of black Muslims that was linked to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
