Grapevine Police Arrest Four in Search Warrant

GRAPEVINE POLICE DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE

Four people face charges following a search warrant on a house in the 4700 block of Brenton Oaks Drive. On Wednesday, February 20, shortly after 8:00 a.m., officers knocked on the door and identified themselves. After not getting a response, the door was breached and officers entered the residence. Two of the occupants were arrested inside the house and two ran out the back door. Both of the individuals who ran were apprehended without incident.

Officers located illegal drugs and various equipment used to commit identity theft. Due to the presence of evidence used in fraudulent activity, Grapevine Police contacted the Secret Service and both agencies are working together in the investigation. As officers were searching the home they located what appeared to be a live grenade. The home was evacuated until members of the Northeast Tarrant County Bomb Task Force deemed the device to be a realistic novelty item and was inert.

Charges against the four people arrested include drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, fraudulent use or possession of identifying information, criminal trespass and multiple outstanding warrants.

Grapevine Police commend all of the officers and agencies involved in the execution of the search warrant and collection of evidence. This includes patrol officers, detectives, dispatchers, and crime scene investigators, and members of the U.S. Secret Service. Grapevine Police are committed to preventing and reducing crime, and will continue to actively pursue illegal activity as we protect the people who live, work, and visit our City.

Texas Man Charged by Criminal Complaint with Conspiring to Provide Material Support to a Foreign Terrorist Organization

ocdetfstrikeforcelogo

US DOJ – Fort Worth – A Texas man was charged today with conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers of the National Security Division, U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox for the Northern District of Texas, and Special Agent in Charge Eric Jackson of the FBI’s Dallas Division made the announcement.

Michael Kyle Sewell, 18, of Arlington, Texas, was charged today by criminal complaint in Fort Worth, Texas, with conspiring to provide material support and resources to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a Pakistani-based foreign terrorist organization. Sewell has been detained pending further court proceedings.

“Sewell allegedly used social media to recruit and encourage an individual to travel overseas to join a foreign terrorist organization and conspired with that person to provide material support to that organization,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.  “The National Security Division is committed to hold accountable those who engage in this behavior.”

“We stay on constant alert for radicals plotting attacks targeting citizens of the United States, here or abroad,” said U.S. Attorney Nealy Cox. “Countering terrorist threats is our highest priority, and we will continue to work to stem the flow of foreign fighters abroad and bring justice to those who attempt to provide material support to foreign terror organizations. I would like to thank the FBI and our Joint Terrorism Task Force partners for all that they do to keep our communities safe.”

“The men and women of FBI Dallas along with our local, state, and federal partners will continue to work diligently against homegrown violent extremists who provide support to any foreign terrorist organization,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Jackson. “As threats are uncovered to the community we serve, the FBI and its partners must continue to ensure we are vigilant and determined to prevent any harm to this great nation.”

As set forth in the complaint, Sewell recruited an individual, identified in the complaint as co-conspirator 1, to join LeT, a designated foreign terrorist organization. Sewell met the coconspirator online and encouraged him to join LeT. 

Sewell provided the coconspirator with contact information for an individual who he believed could facilitate the coconspirator’s travel to join the organization. Unbeknownst to Sewell and the coconspirator, the facilitator was an undercover FBI agent.

Sewell coached the coconspirator about what to say to convince the facilitator that he was sincere in his desire to fight for LeT. Sewell also contacted the facilitator to vouch for the coconspirator’s authenticity. Sewell told both the coconspirator and the facilitator that he would kill the coconspirator if he turned out to be a spy. 

The coconspirator made contact with the facilitator and made arrangements with the facilitator to travel to Pakistan to join LeT.           

The FBI and its Joint Terrorism Task Force members; including the Arlington Police Department, the Fort Worth Police Department, the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, the Naval Criminal Investigation Service, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Texas Department of Public Safety investigated the case.
