SUV and Plate Source Connecticut
The sport-utility vehicle used in the unsuccessful Times Square bomb plot in New York was sold three weeks ago in a cash deal with no paperwork exchanged, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said Monday.
A seller in Connecticut put the Nissan Pathfinder up for sale through the online classified ad site Craigslist and sold it to a buyer who paid $1,800 for the vehicle, the source said. The deal was closed at a Connecticut shopping mall, where the buyer handed over the money and drove off, the source said.
Interesting, so purchased for cash in Connecticut and the plate came from a junk yard in Bridgeport. So, given these clues I kinda think that this person bought the car in the New Haven/Milford area and shot on over to Bridgeport to get that plate.
On the plate, who leaves their plate in a junk yard anyway? Those plates have to be returned usually to the DMV or they will charge you and keep taxing your alleged car. Like I said in my last post about this, many of those junk yards are gray market at best and at worst, mob affiliated.
I have to wonder now as to who may have carried this act out. Home grown jihadis? Some other crazy group? Or maybe a single actor? Of course they spent at least 2K on this whole deal. Rather pricey for a single actor who doesn’t actually make his case as to why he’s doing it.
Time to take a run through the sites and see if anyone’s been chatty about this…
