Sioux Falls Police: Terror Warning Email Untrue
May 4, 2011, 12:16 PM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A claim of a possible terror warning involving a delivery company and online sales of uniforms is catching the attention of Sioux Falls police. But it's not for the reason you might suspect.
According to the email, a large number of UPS uniforms were purchased online. The fear is that those uniforms could get into the hands of terrorists and give them access to your home and other buildings.
"The original claim on the large amount of uniforms being sold on eBay is in fact false. That didn't happen," Sioux Falls Police Detective Sean Kooistra said.
It's believed this email actually started to circulate around the country in 2003 in various forms. Right now, the Sioux Falls Police Department isn't sure why the email, including the signature of a lieutenant, has spread so far, so quickly.
