BREAKING: FBI, SBI reportedly investigating bombs at storage facility

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The FBI and the SBI are conducting an investigation at a storage facility unit on Carolina Beach Road south of Monkey Junction.

A witness called WWAY around 12:45 p.m. and said he saw a bomb unit at North State Storage, which is at the intersection of Sanders Road, and heard an explosion coming from the property a few minutes earlier. A New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman confirmed a small explosion. He referred us to the FBI and SBI.

The StarNews reports the owner of a neighboring business said a law enforcement officer told her investigators “believed somebody was building bombs in a storage unit next door and one of the bombs exploded. The officer told her other bombs were in the unit.”

A FBI spokeswoman says agents are investigating an “FBI-related” case. She says SBI agents, though, are the leading the investigation at the scene. She said she could not provide any other details.

A SBI spokeswoman has not yet returned our call for information.

The Wilmington Police Department’s bomb unit is also on scene to assist.

WWAY has a crew at the scene. Stay with us for more information as it becomes available.
