Rocket launcher siezed in Houston apartment

H/T Atlas Shrugged

A full sized rocket launcher and Jihadist writings were found at a Houston apartment, Click2Houston.com reported on New Years Eve.

A dispute between the launcher’s alleged owner and the apartment tennant, Nabilaye I. Yansane, led to the police seizure, the web site reported.

From the story:

Yansane was charged with criminal trespassing and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to three days in jail, which he has already served. No charges related to the rocket launcher or writings were filed.

“Other people could have had access to the apartment, so maybe if a rocket launcher was located there, as is stated in the offense report, maybe it belonged to somebody else,” attorney Garl Polland said.

Prosecutors said there are no state charges for having the unarmed launcher or possessing Jihadist writings, unless they contain some type of threat.

The former director of Houston’s FBI office said rocket launchers can be dangerous if they’re in the wrong hands.

Hopefully, Homeland Security and other intelligence agencies are on top of it.
