Click here for the criminal complaint, yawn.
Police picked him up and, well, that was about all there was to it...
It happened on the 2800 block of Dupont Ave. N. according to the complaint. The roster lists an address of 2938 Dupont Ave. N., which is a rental property owned by the notorious Bashir Moghul, with the taxpayer listed as Manzoor A. Moghul. ("Moghul" is misspelled in the online listing, but it's still the same Bashir) The property appeared recently on a "naughty list" of problem rentals.
The name "Devord Allen" also turns up a mildly interesting Minnesota Appeals court case from 2002, in which police pulled over a vehicle and the driver Devord Allen was all, like...
"What the hell are you stopping me for? For nothing, that's what!"
Which is an exact quote.
"Nothing" turned out to be $4,000 in cash on his person and drugs discovered in the vehicle by a police canine. The date of the conviction seems to correspond well, but this could still be a different DeVord Allen.
Despite the serious weapons charge against him, Devord Allen is free on $50,000 bond.
