Redstone Arsenal authorities investigating threat

REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. – Redstone Arsenal officials are investigating a threat at a building on post.

Garrison Commander Colonel Tom Holliday said it happened around 3 PM Wednesday at the Logistics Support Activity building. The building was evacuated after authorities received “a threatening communication” from an employee.

After a search, Redstone Arsenal Police gave the all-clear. Holliday said there were no hazardous devices on premises. The investigation continues.

“I am pleased with the immediate response by our Directorate of Emergency Services and that there was no threat to the Arsenal or its personnel,” said Holliday. “It’s important that ‘if you see something, say something’ which allows us to investigate and respond in a timely and safe manner.”
