There are new developments in a local white collar crime investigation dating back nearly five years.
A search warrant was executed by College Station police Friday at Texcon General Contractors in the 1700 block of Graham Road.
In 2003, Texcon was indicted on bribery and theft charges. Its president, Carey Smith is accused of overcharging the city of College Station for materials and labor, which was approved by former public works supervisor, Paul Urso, according to court documents.
Smith and Urso each face two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity stemming from accusations that Urso accepted bribes from Smith, which included money, a trip and upgrades to his home, documents state.
The case is scheduled to go to trial on Monday.
