CHICAGO, Il. — Suspected terrorist, Nabil Al-Marabh, applied for a job as a hazardous materials truck driver on Aug. 10, according to a trucking company in Chicago.
The former Toronto resident applied for the job to haul dangerous goods on Aug. 10, according to the trucking firm’s owner.
"I told him we didn’t haul hazardous materials," says Container Express owner Michael Parise. "But I took his application anyway."
Parise says that the suspect proposed he begin trucking with an Arab-American truck driver he knew who worked for the company. The driver he wanted to work with has been driving for the company for "about a year," he adds.
Parise was suspicious when Al-Marabh was unable to provide a driver’s licence, saying he lost it when he received a speeding ticket. Court documents, however, reveal that Al-Marabh held two driver’s licences one from Ontario and one from Massachusetts.
