SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Two men have been indicted for a plot to burn an East Texas drug recovery center.

A federal grand jury indicted Daniel Kubisty and Eddie Jacobs for planning to burn down the Add-Life Recovery Center in Tyler.

The indictment says that in March of 2012, the two were planning on setting fire to the building on East Fifth Street in Tyler in order to gain a competitive advantage for their business, The Methadone Clinic of East Texas, also in Tyler.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the two men were involved in the day-to-day operations of that facility.

Jacobs is also indicted with witness tampering and murder for hire.

U.S. Attorney's say earlier this month, Jacobs hired someone to kill Daniel Kubisty and prevent him from testifying against him.

The indictment says Jacobs supplied the hired hitman with a weapon and ammunition.
