Two released in Ambassador Bridge incident

| 4/23/2003

Police April 22 released two men who allegedly had dynamite, a collapsible baton and shotgun shells in their car when officers spotted them videotaping the Ambassador Bridge, The Associated Press reported.

Neither man was charged with a crime, but the case remains under investigation, Deputy Police Chief Ronald Haddad said.

“Obviously we're going to wait until we examine all components of this case before we issue a final charge, if any,” Haddad told the Detroit Free Press for a story on its Web site.

Police said officers arrested the men during a routine patrol late Sunday. The men, who were not identified, also had a tape recorder and photocopies of immigration papers.

The Ambassador Bridge has about 10 million vehicle crossings every year and handles about 25 percent of all trade traffic between the United States and Canada.
