    Potential Terror "PROBE" at BARRETT Manufacturing?

    Strange Happening At Rutherford Manufacturing Plant Causes Concern
    WTVF News Channel5 ^ | Jan 26, 2007



    Rutherford County law enforcement agencies were concerned about homeland security safety after an incident at Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc.

    Around 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, an unidentified man of Middle Eastern descent approached an employee outside Barrett Manufacturing, asked about what was made there, and if he could see inside.

    The employee responded with information tours planned in advance.

    The man wanted to know if he could buy metal from the company with the $15,000 to $20,000 in cash he had on him at the time.

    The employee offered to give the man's name to management, but he left in a white dooley pick-up truck with two other occupants and a lot of luggage in the truck bed. The truck may have Michigan license plates.

    "Certainly since 9/11 a lot of law enforcement agencies have taken these kinds of things more seriously. It's hard to say whether there is anything to this or not, but if it is something suspicious we definitely want to know about it," TBI spokesperson Jennifer Johnson said.

    Barrett Firearms makes 50 caliber rifles for the military.

    MIGGY! Why aren't you at the PICNIC match at Markham?

    My excuse is that I'm teaching today for a fairly hefty fee (paid in advance).

    tours planned in advance. Can't do that.

    How about I give $15,000to $20,000 in cash? You need my name? Oh look at time I have to go!!!

    Now why would that sound weird. I would be like that all the time.

    Yes sounds very fishy to me.

    Sounds Smelly & Fishy To Me

    Somebody "up to no good" sure was trying to scope that place out...methinks.

    Yeah, right. When pigs fly.

    Over on SigForum they're worried about whether the security guard was conducting an illegal search or racial profiling.

    Fortunately, as a private security guard and agent of the private property owner they don't have to worry about either of those things.

    Wow! I sure didn't have that reaction to this story...makes me wonder about the common sense of some of the folks over at SigForum, I guess. This is right in my own backyard, so to speak.

    Gotta agree with you on the credability of the SigForum. What are those folks thinking? Sounds like PC gone wild....

    Hey! I am still sick and under meds! I did not feel I was up to compete. I did drop by and took pics of all the "rednecks & klukkers chugging beer & shooting." that according to some antis make up our club.

    Back to the Barret situation, although just asking for metal on itself shouldnt be suspicious, I get the feeling it might be some sort of industrial espionage thing. Who knows? Still suspicious and I'd have my antennas up.

    Well, I was gonna leavy my opinions about that state up North out of it, but since y'all already brought it up, the fact that they had that state's plates means that they were definately up to no good.

    Something just isn't quite right about this situation. At least it seems that they didn't get anything out of it.
