A SPD spokeswoman said Albert had claimed he was seeking the First Baptist Church in Vidor, Texas, where he was seeking to fulfill what he called a "prophecy." Vidor is located about 250 miles east of Seguin.
Albert, 33, of Houston, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a criminal.
SPD spokeswoman Tanya Brown said the investigators had found that the 9-mm Smith and Wesson's gun, which Albert carried with him, was stolen from a house in Vidor. It was not clear whether Albert was responsible for the burglary on Monday, she said.
Albert was arrested on Monday in Guadalupe County Prison with a $ 1
"The Seguin Police Department is extremely grateful to the citizen who called the police," said Brown. "If this topic had not been stopped and taken, the results might have led to another end."
Seguin is a city of about 30,000 and is located about 35 miles northeast of San Antonio.
