A truckdriver who had
just made a delivery to a Suffolk, VA, plant was detained Oct. 12 after authorities
found a written bomb threat against the company in with his paperwork. Charges
are pending against the driver.
The man, whose name was
not released, was not believed to be a U.S. national and was being held by
the Immigration and Naturalization Service, The Virginian-Pilot reported.
Driving a truck owned
by a Canadian firm, the man reportedly made a delivery to the Sara Lee Coffee
and Tea plant. Plant security officers reportedly found the threatening note
while making a routine check of the truck as it was leaving.
The contents of the note
were not released. "It contained enough information to cause the plant
to be evacuated and the state police bomb squad to be called," a spokesman
for the company told the newspaper.
