I use police communication radios at work and State Police shut down I-84 both directions at the port of entry for a bomb. I have not heard the outcome as of yet. If it is at the port it most likely was on an interstate truck of some kind. Any increase in activity in other areas? The State dispatcher was reluctant to give us the info on reason for the freeway shut down. Planerench out.

No, I heard the call over the State dispatch radio with my own ears and watched the State cops racing to the port of entry from my airplane 1000 feet above Boise. No links required. I just don't know how it ended up and missed the local news while attending to my children, "Get back in bed!" Planerench out

I'll tell you what, terrorists better not be attackin' Idaho OR Utah, they'll get their f'in asses shot off. Too many homeboys that spend all summer fall and winter shooting things for any terrorists to be successful there.......

plus too low of a population density to be an attractive place to bomb-

I'm guessing that it was a false alarm or if not was destined for some more popluated area, Salt Lake City at least. Planerench out.

Bomb Dog Alerts Prompting Closure of I-84



By Melinda O'Malley and Associated Press





BOISE -
Interstate 84 is closed east of Boise following a hazardous material incident at the state's east port of entry.

Idaho State Police say at approximately 2:30 Thursday afternoon a long distance truck driver became suspicious about the circumstances involving the pick up of some packages he was hauling.

Police say the driver stopped at the port of entry and requested an I.S.P. officer inspect the truck. The officer then requested the Boise Airport Police send a bomb sniffing dog to check the packages.

Police say the dog alerted on the packages and the interstate was closed as a precaution. "A good bomb dog can hit on a small firearm," said Col. Kevin Johnson with the Idaho State Police, "it could be nothing, it could be a package with residue in it. That's what we're still trying to determine."

Idaho State Police spokesman Rick Ohnsman says the freeway has been closed between mileposts 64 and 71. Traffic is being diverted.

Several agencies have responded to the emergency. Ohnsman says early indications are the closure could continue for some time.

There's still no word on what the hazardous substance is. (Updated 9:35pm, Thursday)

Yup, that's where I got it. Of course I had to break away from Concerned1's post to look that up, so you owe me
