Suspect in Saudi ambassador plot has Texas ties
Suspect in plot to kill Saudi ambassador for the Iranian government has deep Texas ties
By The Associated Press

ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) ' One of the men accused of working for the Iranian government to assassinate the Saudi ambassador has lived in Texas for decades.

Federal officials list Manssor Arbabsiar's residence as a two-story stucco and brick home at the end of a cul-de-sac in Round Rock north of Austin. Nobody answered the door Tuesday at the home decorated for Halloween.

A neighbor says he frequently saw Arbabsiar walking in the neighborhood while smoking cigarettes and talking on a cellphone in a language the neighbor didn't understand.

Records show Arbabsiar has lived in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Corpus Christi and Round Rock and has been married at least twice. He also has a history of arrests in Texas for offenses that include evading arrest and theft.

Arbabsiar is being held without bail.
