COURT DOC: Federal Gun and Drug Charges Added to Indictment Accusing Suburban Chicago Man of Attempting to Support ISIS
A newly filed federal indictment adds firearm and drug charges against a suburban Chicago man accused of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, also known as ISIS.
JASON BROWN, also known as ‘Abdul Ja Me’ and ‘Matthew Dobbs,’ was originally charged in 2019 with attempting on three separate occasions to provide $500 in cash to ISIS, knowing that the group was engaging in terrorist activity. A superseding indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago alleges that Brown illegally possessed four loaded handguns in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime that included distributing methamphetamines. The superseding indictment also accuses Brown of distributing fentanyl and conspiring to possess marijuana plants with the intent to distribute. (Source: U.S. Department of Justice)
