Three Individuals Taken in Custody Last Night in New Bedford, Massachusetts in Connection with the Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects
As reported at ABC6-WLNE TV, three people have been arrested last night in New Bedford, MA in connection with the Boston bombing suspects. Two men and one woman were seen being led away in handcuffs. Police say three people have been taken into custody for questioning at a housing complex, Hidden Brook Apartments, where the younger Boston Marathon bombing suspect may have lived. Do authorities think that these people could have been co-conspirators or maybe have accessories after the fact?
Police apprehended suspects from the Hidden Brook Apartments on Carriage Drive in New Bedford. Neighbors say they think that the girlfriend of 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may have lived in the complex and they have seen him in the area as recently as yesterday.
Dzhokhar is a student at the nearby University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Earlier on Friday his brother, also a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, was killed in a gun fight with police.

Robert Richard says a private complex of off-campus housing at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth was searched by federal authorities Friday evening. According to accounts, it was that search that lead authorities to an apartment complex in New Bedford’s West End, where they took two men and one woman into custody for questioning.
