Military Tightens Security at Base in Delaware after Drivers Raise Suspicion

According to reports, the military has tightened security at New Castle Air National Guard Base in Delaware after unknown suspects apparently tried to probe the base for security weaknesses.

A Pentagon official said that no specific threat or person had been identified, but the base raised its security threat level. Precautions such as additional inspections of the base, tighter checks for incoming mail, and random checks of cars were all put into motion.

The FBI, the Air Force, the Joint Terrorism Task Force and Delaware police are investigating attempted probes of the base perimeter, including the main gate, once on Monday and four on Tuesday, the officials said.
