RHS student facing federal charges after loaded gun found in truck at school


ROBERTSDALE, Alabama — A Robertsdale High School student is facing federal gun charges for having a loaded handgun in his truck at school.

An official with the Federal Bureau of Investigations office in Mobile confirmed Tuesday that Dominic James Bibeau, 18, of Robertsdale, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of a firearm within a school zone.

According to reports, during a routine search, a trained narcotics K-9 officer with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office alerted on Bibeau’s truck parked at Robertsdale High School on March 11.

Bibeaux, a senior at RHS, was removed from class and admitted to having THC products and a pistol in the truck. A search was conducted, and deputies found a loaded .380 handgun in the truck, along with drugs and paraphernalia.

On March 12, Bibeau was booked into the Baldwin County Corrections Facility on state charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, certain person forbidden to carry a pistol, and possession of a concealed weapon without a permit. He was released March 15 on a $5,000 bond.

Records show he was booked April 2 as a federal inmate with the FBI and remains in jail on no bond.
