Suspicious package surfaces at Arizona Nuke Plant
New York: A suspicious item, which was
found at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Arizona
in the US today was removed by a bomb squad.
The security officers at the plant called the
Maricopa County Sheriff`s office at around 5 am and then
called again when a second package was discovered.
Palo Verde officials said one package was found
and the area around it had been evacuated. The nation`s
largest nuclear plant, 55 miles west of Phoenix, has not been
locked down, KTAR.com reported.
Sheriff`s Lt. Brian Lee said, the incident "was
serious enough to shut down the checkpoint. It was shift
change, it caused quite a backup. The power plant remained
operational the whole time."
Lee said a "non-badged" driver was being questioned.
