Lackawanna Businessman Faces Arrest for Sending Cash

Buffalo, NY – Authorities are expected to make another arrest in connection with the investigation into the Lackawanna terror cell.

Tuesday's Buffalo News reports that a Lackawanna businessman will be arrested on charges he illegally sent more than $3 million in cash to Yemen.

Six other men from Lackawanna face charges that they were part of a terrorist "sleeper" cell that under went training at an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan prior to the 9/11 attacks.

The so-called Lackawanna Six were arrested last September and remain in federal custody.

According to the News, the businessman's money transfer was illegal because anything over $10,000 has to be reported.

No word yet on when that arrest will take place.
