Suspected Terrorist Arrested in Memphis

SEPTEMBER 16, 2005 - Posted at 2:58 p.m. CDT

 

MEMPHIS, TN - A federal magistrate has ordered a University of Memphis student held until trial.

Prosecutors say FBI agents found an airline pilot's uniform, a chart of Memphis International Airport and instructional DVDs.  One was titled "How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act." 

Mahmoud Maawad is charged with wire fraud and fraudulent use of a Social Security number.

Describing what agents found, Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Parker argued yesterday against releasing Maawad, saying the acts and circumstances of the case are "scary."

Parker said Maawad, a 29-year-old Egyptian, has been in the country illegally since 1999 and had used a phony Social Security number to enroll in schools and open a bank account.
