A possible TRUCK BOMB turned into a FALSE ALARM today when it was "detected" at a large and very dangerous military/civilian contractor facility in Lexington, Kentucky, called "Bluegrass Station." A truck with "improper credentials" was found on site and it signaled "explosives" to detectors. This comes just days after one of the largest military manufacturing facilities in Russia suddenly detonated with the Russian Government wondering why . . .
FBI agents and emergency crews were responding Tuesday afternoon to Bluegrass Station at Avon after reports of a suspicious vehicle and possible explosive.
Lexington police said its Hazardous Devices Unit was deployed to look at a suspicious vehicle.
Officials said the vehicle had “inaccurate credentials” to be on the campus used by military contractors and that the vehicle had “explosive indicators.”
A robot was seen being used to approach a trailer truck outside the gate, presumably to check for explosives.
Bluegrass Station is described as Department of Defense-style campus that houses governmental and private entities.
Lockheed Martin is the primary contractor at that location and provides "Missiles and Fire Controls" for US Special Operations Command from this facility. . .
For those who don't know, this place stores MASSIVE AMOUNTS of chemical weapons . . . as well as other weapons. It's one of the most deadly places on Earth.
If an explosion took place at the right location in this facility, it could kill all life within about 1,000 miles as prevailing winds carried the chemicals toward the Eastern Seaboard.
