Eric Torbenson reports:

Four people from North Texas indicted last week by a federal grand jury in Dallas were arrested Friday morning in Cancun, Mexico, according to the FBI.

Michael Faulkner, 36, and his wife, Chastity Faulkner, 34, both of Southlake, were central figures in the 19-person indictment brought by U.S. Attorney James Jacks.

Michael Faulkner had been reported as being killed trying to re-enter the United States from Mexico, but that report had not been confirmed.

The indictment alleged a broad cybercrime conspiracy based on Web hosting equipment and companies controlled by and linked to Michael Faulker.
