The men 21-year-old Yousef Megahed and 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed were pulled over Saturday evening during a routine traffic stop near Myers Road and Highway 176. Among the explosive devices found were igniters and fusers. Few details about the suspects are known at this time. They are believed to be students at a Florida college. They are of Middle Eastern descent and are not US citizens. Neither man has been charged, but charges are expected Monday. A press conference will be held in Berkeley County on Monday morning. Among the potential charges is possession of unlawful explosives.
The enemy is here folks…
It’s just a matter of time before one of these Islamic terrorists succeed in killing thousands of Americans. Thank God we caught these scum bags before they did any damage.
This Naval weapons station in South Carolina not only houses Nuclear material, but also houses the U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig, a military prison where enemy combatants have been held. This “suspicious vehicle” was found on highway 176 which leads right into this Naval weapons station. FBI called in, bomb squads arrive, no comment from any official as of yet.
From a blogger who has some intimate knowledge of the base.
Well, 176 leads right into the Naval Weapons Station, Goose Creek, SC and nowhere else. I wrote about it on my blog, but I’ll repeat, we were stationed there for 3 years and NSW is home to our nuclear submarines and nuclear ordinance and our Nuclear Traning Facility. And I’m not talking about a few guns and some ammo, more like 60 million lbs. of conventional ordinance and who knows how much nuke material and warheads. Civilians were not allowed on base when nuke material was being moved to or from subs or ships and Marine guards had orders to shoot to kill anyone approaching a transport vehicle.
Here’s a local report via MM
Goose Creek – Berkeley County police pulled over a vehicle in a routine traffic stop near Meyers Road and Highway 1-76 around 6 p.m. The vehicle with Florida tags was driven by two men of Middle Eastern descent. Inside police found explosive devices. Highway 1-76 near Goose Creek has since been shut down. In addition to the FBI (website) , authorities from Goose Creek, Berkeley County, and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division are on scene. The Charleston County bomb squad has also been called. Officials on scene say that neighbors are in no immediate danger. They also report that they are unsure if a crime has been committed.
Also from the local news who wouldn’t dare say “middle eastern”:
The FBI and the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department are investigating what they think are explosives found in a car in Goose Creek.
Police say part of Highway 176 in Berkeley County is closed, and traffic is limited to local residents around Mount Holly Road.
WIS News 10’s sister station in Charleston, WCBD, reports authorities pulled over a suspicious car at around 6:00pm Saturday. Officers asked to search the vehicles, and discovered what investigators say are “possible explosives” located in the trunk.
Once federal agents were brought in and analyzed the situation, an FBI-controlled robot pulled a bag filled with the suspicious items from the vehicle.
The two men inside the vehicle, which is reported to have Florida tags, have been detained at the scene.
