Threat closes Ventura County port
PORT HUENEME – Port Hueneme in Ventura County was closed off for several hours Monday afternoon while authorities investigated a possible terrorist threat on a cargo ship, authorities said.
The closing came just before noon after a dockworker discovered a possible threat written in the cargo hold of a ship carrying bananas from Guatemala, said Will Berg, the port’s marketing director.
There was some discrepancy in reports of the exact phrasing of the message.
Berg said it read: “This nitro is for you Mr. George W. Bush and your Jewish cronies.”
