Urban Moving Systems was owned and operated by Dominik Suter.[1] After 'Maria' reported the number of their van to the FBI, the dancing israelis were arrested at 4pm on the afternoon of 9-11.[2] Later the FBI searched the offices of Urban Moving Systems and questioned Suter, causing him to flee to Israel before he could be questioned further. Eventually, Suter's name appeared on the May 2002 FBI Suspect List, along with the 19 hijackers.[3]
