Ahmed Mohamed and Yousef Megahed — Indicted on carrying explosive materials across state lines and additional charges.

Michelle Malkin has this update on the “Goose Creek Two.” She notes that they are headed back to Tampa, and in yet another interesting twist to their case, that they were in possession of a “box of bullets” the night they were arrested. She quotes Dan Riehl:

Bullets were among the items investigators found in the car of two University of South Florida students.

The deputy who pulled over Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed and Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, found a box of bullets near the seat, several pipe bombs in the trunk and “other suspicious items,” according to the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office.

Michelle also notes that Egyptian officials have met with the two “students,” and they denied that one of the suspects has a criminal past (as we reported earlier).

The mystery deepens. Stay tuned.
