The ongoing investigation into the San Bernardino terrorist attacks has taken a shocking turn Thursday when the FBI arrested 3 people with connections to terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook.
According to the US Attorney’s Office, warrants were issued in Corona and Ontario, California for Syed Raheel Farook, Tatiana Farook, and Mariya Chernykh.
Syed Raheel Farook is the brother of the shooter and married to Tatiana Farook. Tatiana is the sister of Mariya Chernykh, who is married to Enrique Marquez Jr who is already in custody and awaiting trail for conspiracy charges.
Those arrested today face charges of federal conspiracy, making false statements, and are also charged with marriage fraud. It appears that the marriages may have been arranged for the terrorists to gain legal status within the country.
