Fort Bragg, Home of The Airborne and Special Operations Forces, closed Tuesday evening after a driver attempted to enter the installation without proper identification. The unidentified person was driving a Dodge Ram 1500 and crashed through a security arm, setting off additional security devices. The driver quickly left the installation soon after, but to increase security measures, the gate remained closed. Fayetteville Police Department located the possible occupants and the vehicle.
This is not the first incident this year. After providing an alias name, a man was stopped by guards in July. Another unrelated incident happened in March of earlier this year; Without proper identification, a foreign national tried to access the post. Nouran Ahmad Shibab Sueidan made request to tour ‘the special operations facility.’ A criminal complaint was filed against him, but due to a mental disorder diagnosed by a psychiatrist, Sueidan was compromised in standing trial and the charges were dropped.
