Friend: Ambassador plot suspect had lots of cash
Friend says he last saw ambassador plot suspect in Iran carrying lots of cash over the summer
By The Associated Press

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) ' A long-time friend of a former Texas used car dealer charged in a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia's ambassador in the United States says his friend told in him in August while they were both in Iran that he was making a lot of money for not very much work.

Tom Hosseini says when he saw Manssor Arbabsiar (mahn-SUHR' ahr-BAHB'-see-ahr) in August in Iran, his friend was well dressed and was carrying $20,000 to $30,000 in cash.

Hosseini says Arbabsiar told him he was going to make a lot of money but wouldn't give specifics.

Arbabsiar is a U.S. citizen who also holds an Iranian passport. He and another man are being held without bail for their role in the alleged Iranian plot to kill the ambassador.
