    Man in boat has suspicious device near Surry nuclear plant

    SURRY, VA (WTVR) – Virginia Marine Police say a man in a boat has a suspicious device attached to himself near the nuclear power plant in Surry.

    Officials say the man is in a nine foot inflatable boat in the middle of the James River, just south of the Ghost Fleet between Surry Nuclear Power Plant and Ft. Eustis. They man has a chain wrapped around his neck attached to a 2 foot by 1 foot black box.

    Virginia Marine Police’s John Bull says the man, who was spotted by a commercial crabber around 7 a.m., is making no demands, appears incoherent and disoriented, but at other times is also cooperative.

    According to the Daily Press, Bull said the man provided no information other than to ask people to stay away from him.

    “We don’t know who he is, and we don’t know how he got here,” Bull said. “We don’t know why he has a chain around his neck. We don’t know why the chain is attached to a black box, and we don’t know what’s in the black box either. We are approaching this with an abundance of caution so that a very strange situation doesn’t become more serious than it already is.”

    When authorities arrived at the farm in rural southwestern Minnesota at 1 a.m. Thursday and asked Elizabeth Hawes about a large illegal fire, her response was: “That’s not my brother.”

    In other news, on Thursday, I was bitten deeply by a squirrel, but avoided losing a finger to a large (shell approx. 1 foot diameter) snapping turtle.
