DA investigator probe may compromise other cases

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Some 125 criminal cases could be in jeopardy due to the arrest of a former investigator with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

Lonnie Blevins was arrested last week for allegedly stealing valuable comic books from an evidence storage unit, then selling them for profit.

Now, all cases Blevins worked on while an investigator with the DA's office are under scrutiny. Among those is the $9 million embezzlement case, in which those valuable comics were originally confiscated.
