Searches in Times Square probe yield 3 arrests

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - Law enforcement officials say three people are under arrest on immigration charges after raids in the Northeast today including two who are linked to the Times Square attempted bombing suspect.

An FBI spokeswoman says the searches resulted from evidence gathered in the probe of the bombing attempt. A Massachusetts law enforcement official says two of the men have a "direct connection" to Faisal Shahzad. The official says the two are believed to have provided money to him, but investigators aren't sure if they knew about the bomb plot.

Another law enforcement official says the men are from Pakistan. That official says one of the men had overstayed his visa. The government had already begun proceedings to remove the other man from the country.

Police cordoned off a small house in Watertown, about 10 miles west of Boston, and a neighbor reported seeing an FBI raid there. A gas station in Brookline, another Boston suburb, also was raided. The FBI says location on New York's Long Island were searched. And the FBI in Philadelphia says its agents have been searching locations in New Jersey.
