Authorities search apartment with possible connection to Boston Marathon bombings

| No Comments

Authorities searched an apartment in a suburb of Boston late Monday and early Tuesday that may have some connection in the Boston Marathon bombings, news sources report.

CNN reports that law enforcement officials, including bomb experts, searched an apartment in Revere, Mass. Authorities took some items from the apartment but they are not saying if and how the apartment is connected to the attacks. The apartment's tenant, a Saudi citizen in the country with a student visa, is not being suggested or named a suspect at this point.

According to CNN, no warrant was needed for the search. Authorities searched the apartment for any clues that will help them find suspects and motives for the bombings.

CBS News reports that the man living in the apartment was chased and caught by a civilian after he was seen running from one of the explosions. Speaking about the capture and questioning of the man, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller said, "This could mean a lot, or this could mean very little. It's too soon to call him a suspect."

According to CBS News, at least three people were killed and more than 140 were injured Monday in two bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Officials have heightened security at public events and locations across the nation.
