Arrested the owner of the failed bomb attack in NYC

Posted on: May 4, 2010

A cell phone number belonging to a disposable phone led the FBI agents to the suspect of the failed terrorist attack in Times Square on Saturday night. He was arrested in the John F. Kennedy airport last night, accused of driving the car to one of the most populated spots in America, loaded with barrels of gasoline and two watches that served as timers. The FBI obtained a phone number, and crossing it with other data bases they discovered who they thought was the suspect. Right away, a large police presence tracked and followed him during the afternoon and evening of yesterday, until they arrested him at 11,30 pm in the JFK airport, from where he was planning to flee the country heading to Dubai.
The accused is a US citizen with Pakistani origins, Shahzad Faisal, 30 years old, according to the media and confirmed later on by the Attorney General Eric Holder.
