Federal criminal complaint against suspected Austin bomber dismissed

A federal criminal complaint filed against the suspected Austin bomber has been dismissed.

Federal officials held a press conference Monday in Austin. Authorities dismissed a federal charge against suspect Mark Conditt, who was connected to a string of bombing incidents that happened in Austin last month. 

A complaint was filed on March 20 against Conditt with one count of unlawful possession and transfer of a destructive device. An arrest warrant had been issued hours before Conditt had detonated a device as authorities were attempting to arrest him in Round Rock . Conditt died in the incident. 

His remains were released to the family

The investigation is ongoing.
