Detective Darryl Hunt and Officer Traci Thomas will receive commendations from the FBI for their work in the case involving a Hempstead man convicted of participating in terrorist activities.
In 2010, Barry Bujol was arrested after a two-year investigation found that he had been communicating with members of al-Qaida seeking to aid terrorism efforts. The investigation, which included reviewing e-mail he sent using computers on the campus, led to his arrest. Bujol stood trial last year and was found guilty of trying to aid al-Qaida terrorists.
PVAMU officials worked in full cooperation with the FBI and Bryan Resident Area Joint Terrorism Task Force during the investigation.
