BREAKING: FBI, ATF, large law enforcement presence on El Paso Street in north Beaumont
KFDM is on scene in the 4400 block of El Paso Avenue near Fillmore Street in Beaumont as part of what an FBI agent there tells KFDM is an ongoing investigation. ATF, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Beaumont Police are also at the scene.
The agent says they're 'conducting an operation. Nothing further at this time.'
There's no confirmation about the nature of the operation nor if it's linked to the investigation into explosive devices.
The FBI Houston and Beaumont, along with ATF and Beaumont Police, have been working on the two cases involving a device found in a package April 26 at Starbucks on Dowlen and another that exploded May 10 outside the office at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. No one was hurt in that case. The blast caused minor damage, including a shattered window on the office. The device at Starbucks didn't detonate.
