Possible Arson Attacks in Ft. Bend County


Fort Bend law officials are investigating two possible arson attacks. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls says he believes they are targeted at an FBCSO Sargent. Attacks have been made at the Sargent's home and vehicle. At a press conference Sunday afternoon (12-29-2019), Nehls said the first apparent arson attack happened 6 days ago ...and the second incident happened around 3 a.m. on Sunday. Both involved Molotov cocktails thrown at the employee's house. He described one Molotov cocktail that hit next to a window, and if it had gone into that window would have hurt the person who was sleeping in a bed just inside. "When we apprehend you - and if we find that this is related to a case that was investigated by this employee -- this could be prosecuted as a federal hate crime."

There were no injuries in either incident.
