FORT WORTH -- A Beretta handgun and ammunition were among the items found in the Hill County residence of a teenager accused of plotting a Dallas terror attacks, according to newly released documents.
Hosam "Sam" Smadi, 19, told investigators that he moved into the small mobile home in a rural area near Milford around Sept. 22, two days before investigators say he tried to blow up the 60-story Fountain Place building in downtown Dallas.
Two loaded magazines and a box of Winchester 9mm ammunition were seized along with the Beretta, according to the search receipt filed by the FBI. Investigators also found a variety of documents, including a passport, birth certificate, tax returns and a visa.
The receipt also lists a Sony digital camera, a Dell laptop and two business cards.
The house is well-hidden, located off a muddy road in rural Hill County, tucked behind another small mobile home with a tin roof.
After his arrest on Sept. 24 on a charge of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, Smadi told federal officials that he had moved out of his dome-shaped apartment in Italy two days earlier and into the non-descript house off Hill County Road 4311.
After members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force found the house, Smadi gave them written consent to search it and his Dell laptop computer, which he had left inside. Officials also secured a search warrant for the property.
On Tuesday, because of recent rains, the house could be reached only by a vehicle with 4-wheel drive. The property was vacant, except for a dog running free. No one answered the door at the house where Smadi stayed or at the tin-roofed house in front.
The daughter of the man who owns the property, reached by telephone, said a group of Hispanic men rent the tin-roofed house, but she said she was unaware that the teen accused in the terrorist plot had recently rented the tan house.
Federal officials have said that Smadi lived and acted alone.
