From ABC Action News:

SNIP

Police responded to an unknown situation just after 6 p.m. The gate has been closed for more than three hours now.

While it's not clear what is going on, people close to the scene say the bomb squad is there and they're dismantling an SUV.

and April 19

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY (Bay News 9) — A traffic crash early Monday forced the closing of the main gates at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

According to base officials, a vehicle crashed into the main gates at Dale Mabry Higway. Officials rerouted traffic while repairs were done to the gate.

Traffic had to enter the base through gates at Bayshore Boulevard or MacDill Avenue. Dale Mabry entry was restored by 11 a.m.

Officials said four people were in a Dodge Intrepid that approached the base at 12:45 a.m.

Security officials, suspecting the driver was drunk, asked the individual to turn off the vehicle.

The driver then reversed his vehicle, hitting another car behind it, before proceeding unauthorized through the gate.

Gate security barriers were activated successfully, stopping the vehicle.

Anyone see the movie "Walking Tall" (the remake) with Duane Johnson (aka "The Rock")? Maybe something like the scene where he and his deputy take apart the truck?

They didn’t say, but no doubt they are. When those Amish trade their buggies for SUVs, LOOK OUT! You know they’ve gone bad.

When I was a kid Me and a buddy use to ride our bikes to MacDill and go to the bowling alley. Dependent IDs.

F4s would be doing takeoffs and landing. Talk about a ear drum buster.

They might get one. The local Gannett station says they were told the vehicle contained "military-style clothing" and guns and ammo.

“Once the individuals were unable to show proper identification, their vehicle was inspected and Security Forces members found military-style gear and weapons,” the base said in a statement.

Much more effective to "probe" their SUV with one of these:

That should make them reconsider messing with our military bases...

strange.. my wife and I discussed this just the other day. I traveled to Tampa recently and was able to get on base pretty easily in a vehicle w/o a DOD sticker, with no search of the rental car.
The security seemed pretty lax considering what they have on that facility. I’m not surprised this happened there.

Re: “Anyone know if they are Amish?”

Aw MAN!!; you read my mind - first suspicion to pop into my mind!

Any time you see bearded guys with a Michigan accent wearing broad brimmed straw hats, white shirts and black suspenders you’d better watch out! (Not that I’d condone “profiling” of course...)

They’ve been known to load those horse drawn buggies right up with scrapple and wreak environmental havoc with it all over the place!

I suspect the military uniforms were probably meant to make the people at the checkpoint wave them through thinking they were military - not realizing, of course, that even military actually have to show ID. This type of checkpoint running is a very Middle Eastern tactic. It will be interesting to find out more about these people (if we’re allowed to do so).

MyFoxTampaBay has a video report that has close up footage of some of the contents in the vehicle--guns and lots of ammo clips, a suitcase packed with clothing and other things.

Unable to show proper identification, with military gear and weapons found in their vehicle. Waiting for some description of these a-holes.

From Tampa Bay Online:

SNIP

Base officials haven't heard that it was a planned attack.

A News Channel 8 reporter on scene at the base saw at least 13 loaded rifle magazines and two pistol magazines in a bag.

Authorities also found military clothing and other military-style equipment in the grayish blue Honda CRV driven by the suspects. No explosives were found.
