The owner of Jubilee Joe's Restaurant in Hoover faces federal drug trafficking, firearms, and money laundering charges. A federal grand jury returned the eight-count indictment against Kashif Mohammed Siddiqui in October. It was unsealed today following his arrest.

Siddiqui is charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana in Jefferson and Shelby counties between September 2012 and January 2013 and then in September 2012 and October 2012. The indictment also charges him with transferring a semi-automatic rifle in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and with selling or loaning a .45-caliber pistol to a convicted felon. The money laundering charges are tied to proceeds allegedly obtained during an illegal activity.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney E. Wilson Hunter is prosecuting.
