NEWS: Police: Traffic stop near Houston may be break in Home Depot data breach case via KTRK

A traffic stop in just north of Houston may be a major break in a massive Home Depot data breach.
According to Patton Village police, on Saturday, officers pulled over a vehicle near Highway 59 and State Highway 242 that they say was traveling 10 miles per hour over the speed limit.

Two men inside the vehicle were from Michigan. During the traffic stop, officers noticed some information from the pair wasn't adding up.

They say the men were in possession of what they believed to be criminal instruments that, after a preliminary investigation, were determined to be related to the Home Depot data breach that got national attention a couple months ago.

Both men were arrested and charged with possession of criminal devices. They're currently in the Montgomery County Jail.
