Report: Man sneaks device into Olympic Park
Sunday, May 6, 2012
LONDON (AP) -- Olympic organizers say they are looking into a tabloid newspaper report claiming that a worker had been able to sneak a plastic container with batteries and modeling clay into Olympic Park.
The Sun newspaper paper acknowledged that the unidentified worker had been "properly vetted" and "thoroughly searched" once before entering the park on Friday morning but said he was later able to leave the park and re-enter without being challenged.
Olympic organizers said Monday they are investigating the case. The tabloid claimed the container looked like a "dummy Semtex device."
The paper posted pictures of the alleged box in Olympic Park but there was no immediate way to verify the details of its claim.
