Boston Marathon bombing suspects’ sister arrested

PanARMENIAN.Net - The sister of Boston Marathon bombing suspects Dzkokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested Wednesday, Aug 27, on charges of making a bomb threat, the New York Police Department confirmed, according to CBS News.

Ailiana Tsarnaeva, 24, who lives in North Bergen, New Jersey, was taken into custody, accused of making the threat to 23-year-old woman in Manhattan, police said.

Tsarnaeva was accused of saying: "I know people who can put a bomb on you," CBS New York reported.

She was taken into an NYPD precinct in Harlem, and charged with aggravated harassment. Tsarnaeva was also given a desk appearance ticket and is due back in court Sept 30, police said.

The woman she allegedly threatened woman previously had a romantic relationship with Tsarnaeva's boyfriend, the Associated Press said.

Last year Tsarnaeva appeared in a Boston court on accusations of misleading an investigation into the recovery of a counterfeit bill. Prosecutors said she was not accused of passing the bill, but knew members of the group that did and "lied about certain salient facts during the investigation," according to the AP.

A judge agreed to remove a default warrant against her and released Tsarnaeva on $1,500 personal recognizance in that case.

Tsarnaeva is the sister of the two men prosecutors say plotted the Boston Marathon bomb attack on April 15, 2013, which killed three people and seriously injured scores more.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in a shootout with police a few days after the bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, was captured while hiding in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban Boston home.

He is now awaiting trial in the case and prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty. He is also charged with killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer and carjacking a motorist.
