Federal Charges: Twelve Southeast Texas residents have been indicted and arrested in connection with what federal prosecutors call a “white’s only” racketeering enterprise that engaged in methamphetamine distribution and murder. The indictment returned last week alleges the defendants were part of a race-based organization known as SWS. Federal prosecutors say the group operates in and out of prisons, primarily in Texas. Four of those were charged with murder in the death of 25-year old James Sedtal of Bridge City. KSHN reported Sedtal was murdered back in March 2011 in a home near Hull and his body was discovered inside a burned up car near Hoop n’ Holler, just 100 feet across the Liberty County line into Hardin County. There are at least 16 law enforcement agencies involved in this investigation including ATF, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Secret Service, DEA, FBI, and Texas Rangers among others.

Child Porn Arrests: A joint investigation by the Liberty Co. Pct #6 Constable’s office and Montgomery Co. Law enforcement has resulted in the arrest of a Cleveland couple, Stephen Watkins, 49 and his wife, Sue Allene Watkins, 38.  Mr. Watkins is charged with 3 counts of promoting child pornography, a second degree felony. Sue Watkins was charged with the 3rddegree felony of possession of child pornography. Liberty County Constable John Joslin said the difference is that possession entails owning and viewing while promotion of child pornography alleges downloading such images and sharing them with others. At last report, both Mr. and Mrs. Watkins remained in the Liberty County Jail.

****************************************************

Substation: Work has begun on the long-planned electrical substation to supply power to Boomerang Tube in Liberty. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said a Louisiana based company will be building the substation solely to supply power to Boomerang.
