Damn… Terrorists have been getting it in in Oklahoma???
Federal agents raid a used car dealer — saying the dealership could have ties to terrorism.
The allegations came as the dealership was named in a federal investigation of money laundering to raise money for the terrorist group Hezbollah.
Agents claim the car lot is part of a huge network that is selling cars and drugs — and then using the money to support terrorism against the U.S.
During the raid, documents were hauled out and agents questioned employees and took inventory.
“They’re making big time money and it’s going right into weapons acquisition, terrorist training, recruiting, corruption. Things needed to carry out terrorist attacks across the world,” said Rusty Payne of the DEA. “Some of that money is flowing back to the United States, back to these used car companies, to purchase more used cars to ship them to West Africa to sell those at a profit and then mix those used car proceeds in with the drug dollars.”
According to the DEA, this dealership is one of 30 operations around the country that are set up to raise money for terrorism.
Payne adds, “What’s happening, though, is the amounts are so large that it raised red flags among investigators. There’s no way the used car industry in the US and West Africa could produce these kinds of revenues.”
This is scary…
