UPDATE:Suspicious Package Found At Maxwell Air Force Base Determined As Food
Maxwell Air Force Base closes its gates for several hours after security officials find a package that tested positive for explosives.
That package was about the size of a box of blank checks. The gates were closed for three hours today. During that time, hundreds of cars tried to enter the gates, some people who even had family members inside the base.
Alabama News Network exclusive video shows multiple police cars with K-9 units on scene, ambulances and fire trucks all inside the gates at Maxwell Air Force Base after security officials found a suspicious package at the post office. The gates of the front entrance were also blocked.
The base returned to normal around 1 p.m. Friday.
