There were a lot of security personnel at the airport as the alleged scammers were processed.
Their final destination is North Dakota. The eight alleged scammers will first be flown on a three-hour flight to Oklahoma where they will undergo immigration processing before continuing on a two-hour flight to North Dakota.

Thousands of cases are under investigation. Expect hundreds of extraditions.
