District Attorney Jon David said the investigation into Justin Brochure began with the Department of Homeland Security, which investigates computer-related crimes. David said his office has worked with the federal agency on this investigation.

Brochure's bond was originally set at $1 million when he made his first appearance. A judge lowered the bond to $100,000, and records show Brochure was released from jail on Monday.
