[Ed. – Plus suspicious bulk purchases of cell phones from area Wal-Marts. The cell-phone buys are very characteristic of terror plotters.]
Several Missouri law enforcement agencies have notified the FBI about a large amount of cell phone purchases from area Walmarts.
Now, another incident has some people wondering if we are in danger of a terrorist attack in our area. A large number of propane tanks have been reported stolen from several locations is Independence and Lee`s Summit.
At the end of November, a BP gas station in Lee`s Summit reported 18-20 propane tanks stolen from the outside cages. That same night the CVS on Southwest 3rd Street reported the exact same crime.
Two weeks later, the CVS on East 23rd Street in Independence was hit, and 28 tanks were stolen from that location. …
While there are several ways those tanks and cell phones phones can be used, in this climate, terror attacks are always a consideration.
