This week the Associated Press reported on a document distributed to police officers regarding self-storage facilities and potential terrorist activities. Distributed by the FBI and Homeland Security Department, the document advises police to visit self-storage facilities and encourage employees to report suspicious behavior that may be related to bomb-making.
The notice was distributed in relation to the recent investigation of a possible al-Qaida bomb plot in Denver and New York. It was not intended for public distribution but to educate police about potential threats. The notice states that storage facilities have been used by terrorists to build bombs in the past.
