      ST. MARYS, Ga. -- Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base was locked down for
      security reasons Friday after two Israelis were detained for
      questioning.

      Base spokesman Ed Buczek said two Israeli men attempted to enter the
      base about 10:30 a.m. They were hired by a moving-and-storage company
      to pick up some household goods in base housing, he said.

      One occupant of the vehicle was unable to provide base security
      personnel with proper credentials after arriving at the Franklin Gate
      entrance, Buczek said.

      Base personnel then inspected the van. Military dogs trained to
      detect bombs were called in.

      "The military dogs were alerted to a scent in the cab of the truck,"
      Buczek said. "Guards closed access to the base and notified the
      Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation
      and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service."

      St. Marys police closed access to an area one-half mile out
      surrounding the base, and a bomb squad was called in, Buczek said. A
      briefcase was removed from the vehicle with a remote control robot,
      but nothing was found in it.

      "The dogs were called in again for a second pass of the vehicle, and
      they didn't pick up anything," he said.

      The two men, whose names were not released, were detained and later
      taken into custody by federal immigration officers in Savannah for
      possible deportation, Buczek said.
