HOUSTON - Authorities say real estate millionaire Robert Durst was withdrawing large sums of money and had a fake ID before his arrest this week for murder.

According to a search warrant affidavit made public Wednesday, the FBI learned Durst had made withdrawals over a period of 35 days since October. The warrant was for a search on his condominiums in Houston.

When Durst was arrested in New Orleans Sunday, FBI agents found a Texas ID card under the name "Everette Ward," nearly $43,000 in cash and a rubber mask that could cover someone's head and neck.

Authorities say they were concerned Durst had the financial means to flee the country.

Durst is charged in California with first-degree murder in the 2000 shooting of Susan Berman. He is in custody in Louisiana.
