BRIDGEPORT - Times Square car bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad apparently bought the SUV police say he used from a Bridgeport woman.

Published reports say Peggy Colas, 19, sold the Nissan Pathfinder to Shahzad last week.

Shahzad reportedly paid $1,300 cash for the car that was listed on Craigslist.

A neighbor of Colas says he was also interviewed by investigators. Jack Koons says the family just sold the car to the wrong person and doesn't believe Peggy Colas or her family have any connection to the bomb plot.
