Stories of the Highway Patrol




by Harry C. Wallace, CMSgt [Ret]





While on patrol near the Austrian border, my partner and I were requested to perform a road block.  We were given a full description of the wanted vehicle and itís occupants.  Approximately an hour later we intercepted the car in question and noticed that before it stopped, a rather large object was thrown from the vehicle.  We were warned that this might happen and were instructed to guard the item but not to touch it for safety reasons! 


Upon apprehending the individuals we discovered they were not Germans, and had no valid ID, so we turned them over to the authorities who arrived from Munich.  We later learned that the item thrown from the car was identified as being uranium; we were told to be quiet about our case.
