LOS ANGELES -- (KABC) -- A friend and former neighbor of San Bernardino attacker Syed Rizwan Farook was arrested by the FBI on Thursday and faces three charges.

Enrique Marquez, 24, is accused of conspiring with Farook to provide material support to terrorism in 2011 and 2012, making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of firearms, and immigration fraud, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice. The three-count, 37-page felony complaint was released by the department.

The immigration fraud charge is connected to Marquez's "sham marriage" to Farook’s sister-in-law’s sister — Mariya Chernykh, who is Russian. They married on Nov. 29, 2014, the complaint states.

He is believed by authorities to have bought two assault rifles used by Farook and Farook's wife, Tashfeen Malik, in the December 2 mass shooting and terror attack that left 14 people dead in the Southern California city.
