A Mexican national accused of shooting an off-duty Border Patrol agent during a robbery in Texas was charged with additional crimes related to more robberies Thursday, the Monitor reports.

Gustavo Tijerina, 30, was charged with seven counts of aggravated armed robbery and three counts of engaging in organized criminal activity in connection with four armed robberies in Cameron County. Cars were stolen in those cases.

Tijerina already has been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega Jr., 36, of Kingsville.

Tijerina likely won’t be going anywhere after his bail was set at $2 million.

The former head of the Milwaukee FBI office is accused of urging an agent to commit perjury and grilling subordinates for talking with investigators, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Office of the Inspector General believes Teresa Carlson likely lied when she was questioned and may have violated federal law by telling an agent to lie under oath.

Despite the findings, the FBI declines to discuss whether she was disciplined, and the Justice Department opted not to prosecute.

Carlson is the acting deputy assistant director of Facilities and Logistics Services Division.

According to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Carlson “conducted herself unprofessionally and exhibited extremely poor judgment” when she allegedly told Special Agent Mark Crider to lie under oath.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice delayed investigations of child pornography tips for months, the Post Crescent reports.

Criticism of the DOJ’s Internet child pornography unit mounted in March, when Milwaukee Special Agent-in-Charge Willie Brantley was fired and Special Agent Anna King resigned. It was discovered that nearly four dozen cases languished for months.

DOJ officials said they are overwhelmed and were forced to prioritize cases.

“A deep dive on any of these cases will reflect that they … were handled appropriately or resulted in discipline,” said DOJ Division of Criminal Investigation Administrator Dave Matthews.

Officials at the office denied any systemic problems existed.

Sen. Grassley Demands Answers from DEA about ‘Brutal Captivity’ of College Student

Sen. Chuck Grassley wants answers.

The Republican from Iowa is demanding details of the treatment of Daniel Chong, who was detained and deprived of water and food for five days, the Hill reports.

“The American people still do not know the full details about Mr. Chong’s mistreatment and abuse,” Grassley wrote. “And despite this inexcusable behavior and long-overdue findings, the American people still have no idea whether these agents and administrators are still working for the DEA.”

The letter to DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart comes after an Inspector General report that “raises even more questions.”

“Not only were there specific failures by specific agents and employees that led to Mr. Chong’s brutal captivity, as well as a possible attempted cover up by senior DEA officials, but the entire system itself was set up to fail and forestall any future review,” Grassley wrote. “This is wholly unacceptable.”

Chong, a college student, reached a $4.1 million settlement with the DEA.

JPMorgan Chase was among at least five financial institutions recently hacked in coordinated attacks, the USA Today reports.

A federal law enforcement official told USA Today that investigators believe Russian attackers were behind the hacking. Now FBI agents are trying to determine whether the attacks were related to U.S. sanctions against the Russian government.

The banks lost sensitive data in the attacks.

Companies “of our size unfortunately experience cyberattacks nearly every day,” JPMorgan spokeswoman Trish Wexler said in a statement without confirming the reports. “We have multiple layers of defense to counteract any threats and constantly monitor fraud levels.”

FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the bureau is “working with the United States Secret Service to determine the scope of recently reported cyber attacks against several American financial institutions.”
