Austin Police Get 370 Suspicious Package Calls, Find Nothing

Austin Police Get 370 Suspicious Package Calls, Find Nothing

Authorities are investigating a series of deadly explosions in Austin, Texas.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has offered a $15,000 cash reward to anyone who can provide useful information about the perpetrators of these attacks.

There have been three explosions since March 2, 2018, two of them occurred on Monday. Austin police have urged residents to stay vigilant of their surroundings and report any suspicious items or behavior, leading to 150 calls to 911 between Monday and Tuesday morning; none of these calls led to the discovery of any danger. A 70-year-old woman was injured in that blast.

"From everything I've heard about Draylen, he was an outstanding young man who was going places with his life", Manley said. Another victim, 75-year-old Esperanza Herrera, is Hispanic, and remains in critical condition.

It appears that the March 12 devices were left on the victims' doorsteps on Sunday night, and were not delivered by mail. However, the public should be aware of any sort of unexpected package that could be a different type of container.

The FBI and ATF are assisting local police. However, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley has already said they will likely face a "lengthy investigation" moving forward.

"The fact they have not only been able to build these bombs, but then travel with them to the target location without them exploding either during construction or during deployment, shows that they do have a certain level of sophistication and they know what they are doing", he said. They aren't ruling anything out, including terrorism or hate.
