Falls Reserve Air Station and other local military facilities receive "suspicious packages"


Niagara Gazette — Tuesday's incident lasted about three hours

The base remained on lockdown until around 6 p.m., when a team of FBI agents finally cleared the facility to re-open. No one was injured in the incident.

The cause for concern then was a package that had Arabic writing on it. At that time, four people who came in contact with the package were segregated and put through a decontamination process. 

At least one of those people was later transported to the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo for a medical evaluation.

FBI investigators found no hazardous materials inside the package. Military sources said the package contained documents written in both English and Arab.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
