June 8, 2006 — The former head Islamic chaplain for the state prisons pleaded guilty yesterday to charges he had weapons in his Bronx apartment.
Warith Deen Umar then accused authorities of using the case as an excuse to raid his home to search for terrorism-related materials.
Umar admitted he had the guns in a Bronx building he owns when he called cops there in December after a dispute with a tenant.
Officials said he was not allowed to have guns because he was convicted in 1971 of possession of a dangerous weapon.
