ATF raids home of Texas judge in firearms case

 

GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) — Federal officers have raided the home of a veteran Central Texas judge in a firearms investigation.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Friday night searched the home of Williamson County Court-at-Law Judge Tim Wright.

ATF spokeswoman Nicole Strong says the search warrant at Wright's house in Georgetown pertained to an enforcement of federal firearm regulations. She did not release additional information.

Agents were seen leaving the home with some black carrying cases and other items.

Wright, who was elected in 2002 and took office the following year, did not immediately return a message for comment Saturday.
