Federal agents from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Taskforce served yet another search warrant at the house of accused terrorist Mohammad Hamza Khan. NBC 5 Investigates obtained exclusive video of the search.
Around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, several dozen federal agents spent at least an hour at Khan’s Bolingbrook home. The agents could be seen carrying out boxes of evidence, a computer hard drive and other large items. Agents also searched two cars in the driveway and were seen photographing the family's house.
Khan was arrested Oct. 4 at O’Hare International airport as he and his 17-year-old sister and 16-year-old brother were trying to board a flight for Vienna and then Istanbul. Khan was immediately taken into custody and has been behind bars ever since. He has since pled not guilty to terrorism charges.
His sister – who is now 18 – and his younger brother – were questioned – but not arrested. During a November detention hearing prosecutors presented evidence that suggested Khan’s siblings also planned to join ISIS.
FBI would only confirm that in fact a court-ordered search warrant was served in an ongoing case. It’s unclear if this most recent search pertains to the case against Khan, or possibly a case being built against his siblings.
Khan’s attorney Tom Durkin did confirm to NBC 5 Investigates that the search warrant served today was limited to communication devices in the home.
Khan is set to appear in court again next week.
