NM bases, state homeland security on alert

-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's homeland security secretary says the state is on heightened alert because of the death of Osama bin Laden, but no specific threats have been made to New Mexico.

State Homeland Security Secretary Michael Duvall says states were told to go to heightened alert because of the uncertainty about what might occur in the wake of the Al-Qaida leader's killing by U.S. forces in Pakistan.

Duvall says residents should be more aware and report anything suspicious to local law enforcement.

New Mexico's three Air Force bases and White Sands Missile Range also have heightened security.

Duvall says the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is making checks of both open and classified information to make sure the agency stays current with what's going on.
