Navy officials released these and other details of the case involving Midshipman 2nd Class Juan Domingo Alonso, 24, of North Hollywood, Calif., yesterday afternoon.Practice makes perfect.
Alonso, who was in San Diego for a Naval Academy summer training program,
Alonso was detained June 10 by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for allegedly trying to smuggle about 153 pounds of marijuana across the border at San Ysidro, Calif. Around that same time, according to the documents, he is accused of possessing a .38-caliber revolver and five .38-caliber rounds on base in San Diego. In another part of the document, Alonso is accused of receiving a .38-caliber Smith &Wesson pistol, which he knew was stolen, while on base in June.
Around July 5, 2008, he allegedly was part of a conspiracy involving the home invasion, assault and theft, according to the documents. The approximately 120 pounds of marijuana was in two suitcases and the $12,000 was in money orders, according to the papers, and Alonso was allegedly armed with a 12-gauge shotgun and .38-caliber revolver. Also last July, the documents indicate that he allegedly distributed the same amount of marijuana stolen from the home near Memphis, Tenn.Talking about blowing your ride. Sheezzzz. At least he was and engineering major, right?
