San Bernardino killers Sayed Farook and Tasheen Malik reportedly received a hefty bank deposit two weeks before storming a Christmas party, killing 14 people and injuring 21 others in the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. Authorities found a $28,500 deposit made to Farook's WebBank.com account on November 18th.
Additionally, Farook moved large chunks of the money around in the kind of banking activity that should have caught the attention of authorities.
Fox News reported Farook, who earned $53,000 a year from his county job as an environmental health inspector, made several transfers with the deposited funds. He reportedly made three transfers in the amount of $5,000 to his mother. Investigations revealed an additional $10,000 cash withdrawal from a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino, which some suspect went to Enrique Marquez, the man who sold Farook and Malik the firearms used during the terror attack. Investigations are still underway.
“Right now, our major concern is determining how those firearms, the rifles in particular, got from Marquez to Farook and to Malik,” said John D'Angelo, assistant special agent in charge with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The banking activities alone indicate “significant evidence of pre-meditation,” said one source to the investigation, discrediting a theory the married Muslim couple went on a shooting rampage because they were insulted and offended at the Christmas party.
Stu Burguiere, co-host of The Glenn Beck Program, noted on air Tuesday that the activity should have given "a window to potentially find them before they [did] this."
He went on to discuss with co-host Pat Gray whether or not Farook's parents had prior knowledge about the attacks in light of $15,000 being transferred to the mother's bank account.
