Storage facility searched amid terror warning

THE BRONX - Police have searched a storage facility in the Bronx Wednesday for items possibly related to bomb-making activities.

The manager of American Self-Storage on River Avenue says police officers focused on one particular locker that was said to contain suspicious belongings. According to the manager, the owner of the locker cooperated with police. After K-9 dogs sniffed the area, the owner says they only found body cream.

People who use similar storage facilities say security needs to be tighter.

"They should just have some kind of detector looking for specific things, like they do in the airport," says customer Bobby Bodon.
