Florida Cracker has details. Fox’s correspondent at the scene says the bomb squad is on the way. According to the Miami Herald, the driver is Iraqi and one of the men found hiding in the truck is Lebanese.
The Herald also says the Center for Domestic Preparedness, which bills itself as “the nation’s premier Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training center,” is on the scene.
Maybe something, probably nothing. Standby.
Update: All three men are here legally and none are on a terror watch list. The truck was detained at 8 a.m., but apparently the cargo hold hasn’t been opened or inspected yet.
Update: There’s an outstanding warrant for one of the men.
Update: The truck has been searched, and the FBI has now arrested the three men. There’s a press conference in half an hour. According to Fox, the driver didn’t know what was in the cargo hold when asked.
Update: Nethicus watched the press conference and says nothing but auto parts were found in the trailer. Apparrently all three men are from Dearborn, Michigan.
Update: The Miami Herald initially reported that two suspicious 55-gallon drums were found in the cargo hold. The police denied it at the press conference.
