(64801/64804) -- Last year 2 hours and 45 minutes away from Joplin, yesterday's New York City terrorist suspect got ticketed as a truck driver.
The terrorist suspect would have driven through Joplin as he worked for a private trucking company based in Florida traveling all over the Midwest.
He was ticketed in 2015 and had to appear in court in Platte City County Court in 2016. He never appeared in court. Fees were paid through mail and a bond was applied. Platte City is 10 minutes from Kansas City International Airport.
He also had numerous other tickets in Nebraska and Eastern Missouri from our research. 🙁 #NYCTerroristAttack
