Man's federal charges could help ex-girlfriend charged by state

Investigations by state and federal law enforcement into bomb threats made against Texas State University and Texas A&M University have resulted in the arrests of a Bryan man and his ex-girlfriend. The criminal defense attorney for the girl said her arrest by the Texas State Police Department is in conflict with the evidence the FBI obtained that resulted in the arrest of the boyfriend on federal charges. State authorities claiming to have evidence linking her email account to the bomb threats against the two universities arrested the 19-year-old woman. The charges against her include three counts of a felony charge of making a terrorist threat and three misdemeanor charges. She faces up to 10 years and a fine up to $10,000 on each felony charge. Each of the misdemeanor charges is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine up to $4,000.

Raid leads to large drug stash, federal charges for Houston men

Allegations of drug possession are serious on both the state and federal levels. With that mind, readers in Texas will be interested in a recent raid by federal authorities in Pennsylvania. Reportedly, an alleged drug ring was broken up, and authorities have made drug charges against four people, some of who are from the Houston area. The suspects were arrested on federal drug charges that included allegations of drug trafficking. The investigation was said to have been conducted by several state, federal and local law enforcement agencies.A news release from the United States Attorney's Office alleged that the four men conspired to work together and with others to distribute cocaine on multiple occasions. A grand jury indicted all of the men based on a federal investigation that apparently began in 2009 and continued into September of 2011. A federal raid purportedly resulted in the seizure of 35 pounds of cocaine, the estimated street value of which is $3 million. Authorities also confiscated $7 million in currency.
