FBI & ATF Conducting Raid Near Rice University in Houston
Shortly after 4:00 pm local time a combined force of FBI, ATF, and Houston PD conducted a raid on a house in a neighborhood near Rice University. The federal agents and police are reported as being armed with “long guns” and body armor.
The neighborhood is the same one that was raided during an investigation back in 2013, and neighbors have speculated that they’re fairly certain the house raided today is that same one. Another neighbor stated that a Houston police officer told him they were looking for bomb-making materials.
The FBI for its part has refused to confirm the purpose of the investigation near Rice University. A spokeswoman for the FBI would only confirm that they are “lawfully present present conducting law enforcement operations in southwest Houston, Texas in the interest of public safety.”
There is no word at this time as to whether the house is owned by evil right-wing Nazis, violently non-violent Antifa, or brownish Asians looking for the Aloha Snack Bar.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned for updates.
