Launching tubes for missiles found in Alabama

AL.com: At least three tubes that are used to launch military-grade missiles were found Tuesday at a moving company on Interstate 65 Service Road West in Mobile, authorities said.

No missiles were found, police said, and no one was injured.

Members of the Mobile Police Department's bomb squad were called to Paulk's Moving at 2051 I-65 Service Road West on Tuesday afternoon after employees found a "suspicious package," police spokesman Officer Eric Gallichant said.

At least three tubes used to launch missiles were uncovered in a shipping container at the business, Gallichant said.

Authorities were still trying to determine who shipped the tubes to whom, Gallichant said.

The investigation was turned over to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
