Conroe chef Dine "Dino" Rraci is in jail after police allegedly found him in possession of two loaded semi-automatic pistols and 1,700 rounds of ammunition at the Bistro Italiano & Rex Steakhouse on Nov. 22.
Investigators also found "several other firearm boxes in the restaurants, hidden in trash cans and food pots" at the upscale restaurant off of Texas 105. Rraci was arrested for smuggling and the unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
His attorney Steve Jackson said that "the firearms represent 'extenuating circumstances,' and that to regard Rraci as a convicted felon 'may not be a correct statement as far as state law is concerned.'"
