FBI Raids Locations In Boston, Long Island, New Jersey in Connection to Times Square Bomb Case


The FBI raided several locations this morning in connection with Faisal Shahzad’s attempted bombing in Times Square last month. In Massachusetts, two people were taken into custody for alleged immigration violations, one at a home in Watertown, Massachusetts, the other at a gas station, and a third person was taken in in Maine. The Feds also executed search warrants at a printing shop in Camden, New Jersey and at a residence in nearby Cherry Hill, according to the Journal. Gail Marcinkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the Boston office of the FBI, told the AP, the searches do not involve “any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States.”
