SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Two men have been indicted for a plot to burn an East Texas drug recovery center.

A federal grand jury indicted Daniel Kubisty and Eddie Jacobs for planning to burn down the Add-Life Recovery Center in Tyler.

The indictment says that in March of 2012, the two were planning on setting fire to the building on East Fifth Street in Tyler in order to gain a competitive advantage for their business, The Methadone Clinic of East Texas, also in Tyler.  Methadone Clinic of East Texas also has offices in Lufkin and Waskom, near Shreveport. 

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the two men were involved in the day-to-day operations of that facility.

Jacobs is also indicted with witness tampering and murder for hire.

U.S. Attorney's say earlier this month, Jacobs hired someone to kill Daniel Kubisty and prevent him from testifying against him.

The indictment says Jacobs supplied the hired hitman with a weapon and ammunition.

Earlier this year, Methadone Clinic of East Texas opened its third location in Lufkin.  During an interview in February, Jacobs described the business as providing a new treatment option for pain pill addiction in East Texas.  "Everyone in the United States, everywhere in the world, it is very prevalent, opiate usage," said Methadone Clinic of East Texas Director Edward Jacobs.
