Earlier today, we told you that Syed Farook’s friend Enrique Marquez would reportedly face criminal charges. And now, two weeks after the deadly terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Marquez has been arrested:

More from the L.A. Times:

Enrique Marquez, the friend of terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, has been arrested on criminal charges in connection with the Dec. 2 massacre in San Bernardino, federal authorities said Thursday.

The 24-year-old Riverside resident once lived next door to Farook and purchased two of the semiautomatic rifles that Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, used in the attack that killed 14 people.

The arrest represents a major development in the widening investigation of the third foreign terror attack in the U.S. this year, and the deadliest since 2001.


Some tweeters can’t help but wonder:
