According to CNN.com, a Mississippi man has been arrested in connection with the investigation into ricin-tainted letters sent to President Barack Obama and other officials, federal and local officials.

FBI agents arrested James Everett Dutschke of Tupelo at his home early Saturday without incident, said FBI spokeswoman Deborah Madden.

This week, the agents searched Dutschke’s residence and former martial arts studio, though it’s not clear what they found.

 

Tuesday, prosecutors dropped charges against Paul Kevin Curtis of Corinth, who was arrested April 17 and accused of sending a threat to the President after letters containing a suspicious powder triggered security scares around Washington.
