Feds Freeze $29,000 In North Carolina Terror Suspect's Accounts

Federal agents have frozen nearly $29,000 in the bank accounts used by a North Carolina terrorism suspect.

Court papers released Tuesday show that agents in early August froze $28,940 in two Wachovia accounts that Daniel Patrick Boyd could access. Prosecutors have charged Boyd with plotting international terrorism, saying that he was gathering cash to pursue violent jihad overseas.

Previous warrants showed that agents seized some $14,000 in cash from the Boyd home. He was arrested last month with two of his sons and four others. An eighth suspect is at large and thought to be in Pakistan.

A separate warrant released Tuesday shows that agents froze more than $6,000 in the bank account of suspect Hysen Sherifi.
