A stolen trailer carrying
fertilizer and pesticides that sparked a nationwide search last week was recovered
undamaged, Saturday in Hillsdale, NJ. Authorities said they had no reason
to believe the theft was terrorist-related, according to ABC News.
The truck and trailer
were stolen early last week from the loading dock of Rockland Corp. in Parsippany.
The tractor was found
abandoned last Thursday in Elizabeth. The trailer's contents appeared to not
have been disturbed. Officials believe locals may be responsible for the theft,
citing several previous thefts of Rockland trucks.
The theft prompted authorities
to issue a nationwide alert amid heightened concern over the possible use
of hazardous materials trucks in terror attacks following the Sept. 11 attacks
on New York and Washington, DC. Initial reports classified the truck's contents
as hazardous, but officials now say they are not.
