FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WNCN) – A man is under arrest after he sparked a security threat at Fort Bragg on Monday.
Col. Larry Dewey, Fort Bragg’s director of emergency services, said a man in his early 20s approached the gate in a pickup truck.
The man could not produce proper identification and gave multiple names. The man is not a soldier and not related to a soldier.
A suspicious locked container was found in the pickup truck, Dewey said.
The contents of that package is under investigation.
“It could be a weapon, it could be ammunition. We’re not sure what’s in that container,” Dewey said.
K-9s were not brought out to search the package but an electronic device gave officials enough signal to warrant the closure.
The colonel called Fort Bragg’s response a “normal security precaution.”
The All American ACP reopened just before 6 p.m.
The man who was arrested is being held at the Harnett County jail.
The access point is located on the All-American Freeway before its intersection with Gruber Road on post.
