AIKEN, S.C. — Law enforcement officials determined Monday that there was no explosive residue on a delivery truck that triggered an emergency response at a former bomb-making site that still handles nuclear materials.
The delivery truck had caught the attention of a bomb-sniffing dog at the Savannah River Site, and initial electronic tests also indicated the possibility of explosive residue, officials said in a news release. Law enforcement from South Carolina and Georgia was called in to help on-site security guards, and site barricades went up to keep out incoming traffic.
About two hours after the site issued its first security alert to the public, investigators announced that they found no explosive residue or devices on the truck. ∞∞∞∞∞ MORE »»»»
