As reported at CBS News, Massachusetts State Police confirm that a search warrant related to the probe in the Boston Marathon bombing was served Monday night in Revere, Massachusetts. Law enforcement officers investigating the Boston marathon bombings searched the suburban Revere apartment of the Saudi national who is being questioned in connection with the double bombing attack yesterday on Patriot’s Day at the end of the Boston Marathon that has killed three people and injured over 150, many severely. Obviously, there must have been some connection as to why investigators were allowed to gain a search warrant. However, CNN is reporting that according to a federal law official, the search took place with consent, so no search warrant was needed. The fog of news. Authorities are not saying if they gathered anything of any importance in their search; however, they better not have if they did.
Some investigators were seen leaving the apartment building early Tuesday carrying brown paper bags, plastic trash bags and a duffel bag.
WBZ says the search lasted nine hours. The Revere Fire Department wrote on its Facebook page it pertained to “a person of interest.”
Two men were questioned by federal agents in the lobby overnight and handed over their passports before they were allowed to go upstairs, WBZ reports.
Miller says the man was being treated for burns on his hands, and authorities suggest he may be in the U.S. on a student visa.
UPDATE I: The search warrant was executed at 5th floor of the Ocean Shores Tower apartment complex located at 364 Ocean Ave in Revere, MA.
The Gateway Pundit has the list of those who reside at the apartment complex that was searched by police.
UPDATE II: As reported at the Daily News, a law student who lives at the Ocean Shores Tower complex, home to many college students, said authorities raided a fifth floor apartment beginning around 7:30 p.m.
