October 4, 2013
The FBI employed a bomb squad, a hazardous material team and helicopters when they searched Miriam Carey’s condominium in Stamford, Connecticut on Thursday.
Carey was executed by police after briefly eluding them following an encounter at a police state checkpoint outside the White House. The incident resulted in a lockdown of Congress and a “shelter in place” order on Capitol Hill.
Stamford resident Eric Bredow told News 19 WLTV an FBI bomb squad arrived at his building and a helicopter swooped overhead. Other residents were ordered to evacuate and were told they would not be allowed to return home for hours or overnight.
CNN reported the condominium complex remained cordoned off on Friday.
On Friday, the FBI and local law enforcement said they did not find firearms or “evidence that [Carey] was angry with the government,” The Courant reported.
