Fed. vs. State
Have a case where a Juvi called in a bomb threat to the school.
Couple of minutes later, called in to the Air Force Base.
(Basically, called # in a stolen phone - called "Mom - work". Just so happens she worked at the Air Force Base.)
If the AF declines to prosecute, can we? Don't necessarily have to, but would like to.

Sell tickets if the feds take it !
I've seen them take 1 case in almost 20 years.
However, they are very nice about doing the investigation and then handing it over to the locals. Only issue I've had with federal investigations is the headache you have to go through to get permission for them testify.
