Multiple cell phone purchases have been made at 3 Wal-Marts in Missouri, raising suspicions concerning why so many cell phones would need to be purchased at once.
In one instance, two men in Lebanon, MO., purchased 60 cell phones early in the morning from a local Wal-Mart. Police were notified of the suspicious purchase, but no arrests were made as technically nothing illegal had occurred.
Police informed the reporting news agency that cell phones can be used by terrorists as bomb detonators, as well as for disposable and difficult-to-track communication. The FBI was notified of this and one other similar instance, as is procedure for suspicious activity has been reported.
After the terrorist attacks of the last month, authorities are on the look out for these kinds of suspicious activities.
