Problem with bash script

I am attempting to write a simple Bash script that will find all the
'*.pem' files in a directory structure and move them to another
directory. It seems to work until I get to the copy part where it fails.

My scripting skills are not that good. Perhaps someone could tell me
what I am doing wrong.

This is the script:

#! /usr/bin/env bash

# Save the field separator

# Set it to line breaks

for i in $(find ./ -name "*.pem" -print); do

# Get the basename
BN=$(basename $i)

# copy the file to another directory using the base name
cp $i /usr/home/tmp/$BN


# Reset the IFS variable
