ATF ramping up probe of explosives in east Texas
TYLER, Texas (AP) - A federal agency says it will add resources
to investigate a series of incendiary devices found in east Texas
in recent weeks.
Spokesman Tom Crowley of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives tells the Tyler Morning Telegraph his
agency believes at least some of the incidents are related.
The latest of at least a dozen incidents was a suspected pipe
bomb found Monday in the front yard of a business in Tyler, about
90 miles east of Dallas.
Crowley said additional agents will be used to conduct
interviews and look at surveillance video.
Federal officials also told the newspaper they were
investigating the discoveries of suspected incendiary devices
during an investigation into church fires last month.
