Official: Shahzad received money at LI donut shop
According to a law enforcement official, alleged failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad says money he used to fund the attack was retrieved on Long Island.
Faisal Shahzad drove from Connecticut to the Dunkin' Donuts near the Ronkonkoma train station sometime before the May 1 attempted attack, the official says. Last week, authorities retrieved 30 days worth of surveillance video from the shop.
Officials won't say who Shahzad met with, how much money was exchanged or whether the video was useful.
Authorities say Shahzad may have used an informal network of brokers called a "hawala" to transfer the money by hand.
The new information comes two days after FBI investigators searched numerous locations throughout the Northeast and on Long Island in an effort to track how Shahzad may have funded his plot.
