Hours before second Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested last night on Franklin Street in Watertown, Mass., three individuals were taken into custody by the FBI as part of their investigation to catch him.
One man and two women were photographed being taken away in handcuffs by authorities from the Hidden Brook Apartments in New Bedford, according to DailyMail. It is not known whether one of the two women taken away in the custody was the younger suspect's girlfriend.

The individuals were not arrested and later released after questioning. They were approached by the FBI after a search warrant was conducted at an apartment at the complex, which is located just 10 minutes away from Dartmouth campus, where the younger suspect studied.
Dzhokhar was reportedly seen in the apartment complex area after the bombings and his unnamed girlfriend may have lived there as well.
America's largest manhunt for the second Boston Marathon bomber came to a culmination last night when he was arrested just before 9 p.m. ET after he was found hiding in a boat behind a residence in Watertown.
"He is in custody, he is alive and we are going to prosecute him and bring him to justice," a police officer said, according to a witness in the neighborhood who spoke to ABC News.
A neighbor that spoke to ABC News Friday evening, said that the owner of the the house where the boat is parked heard some noise inside the boat and lifted the cover just to discover a person bleeding inside. Apparently he alerted police and gunshots were heard after that.
The finding is the end of a day-long national manhunt for the suspect of the bombings Monday that killed 3 people, including a young boy. His older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 was killed in the early hours of Friday.
Dzhokhar and his brother are suspected of planting two bombs at the Boston Marathon on Monday, which detonated and killed three people while injured over 140 others, and killing a police officer on the MIT campus Thursday evening.
Justice was served with the arrest of Dzhokhar within 24 hours of the FBI releasing photos of the bombers.
