LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Motions filed in federal court indicate that a Tenaha man pinned with gun charges has also been a suspect in the burglary and surveillance of the Tenaha city office.

On a decision handed down Feb. 8, Federal Judge Ron Clark denied a motion to suppress filed by the attorney of Roderrette Dewrayne McClure. It was what was in that motion and the prosecution's rebuttal which shed light on why federal agents searched McClure's home.

In the defense's motion to suppress evidence, the attorney argues that federal agents searched McClure's home looking for evidence that he had set up surveillance of the city office and stolen 500 pounds of marijuana from the city marshall's office.

The defense argued that the only evidence of criminal activity that criminal agents could find were firearms, which McClure could not own, as he has a felony conviction.

"The warrant did not list the violation 'Felon in Possession of a Weapon,'" the motion argued.

The prosecution argued that the firearms were found in plain view and the officers may seize the evidence if it is immediately apparent.

McClure and his wife, Jeannie McClure, are scheduled to go to trial in federal court on Feb. 21.
