(Newser) – The Nissan Pathfinder used in the failed Times Square bombing changed hands just 3 weeks ago for $1,800, and no paperwork was done, CNN reports. The buyer was Hispanic or Middle Eastern, but the seller doesn't remember his or her name, a source tells the New York Times. The SUV was advertised on Craigslist, and the transaction took place in the parking lot of a Connecticut shopping mall.
