Investigators clear Hot Springs of possible stashed explosives
An ISB Special Agent worked with park rangers andFBI agentsin the search for explosives possibly stashed inHot Springs National Parkin April. After anonymous tips were called in to the park, the Reserve Street Trail system was closed for about 10 hours to allow investigators to clear the area.
Callers told the park that they had seen a man carrying a box with unknown items on the trail, and that they believed the man was a suspect recently arrested for stealing explosivesfrom a nearby work site. The callers saw the man return to the trailhead empty-handed after about 20 minutes.
Responding quickly, park rangers closed the area. Along with ISB and FBI agents, aLittle Rock Police DepartmentK-9 team trained in explosives thoroughly searched for any suspicious items. None were found and the temporary park closure was lifted.
