Goto Cnn.com or foxnews.com and you will get more. The last I have heard is that the cars have licence plates from other cars. No the 'lude was not hers.

here's the story you guys

NAPLES, Fla. — Officials blew up a suspicious package and detained three men along Florida's Alligator Alley Friday morning after an all-night search for two vehicles thought to be involved in possible terrorist activity.


Police in Florida and Georgia had been searching for the vehicles after an alert restaurant customer in Calhoun, Ga., notified them that she had overheard three men of possibly Middle Eastern descent joking about the Sept. 11 attacks and discussing what could be a terrorist plot.

The two cars with Illinois plates were pulled over about 1 a.m. ET after running a toll booth on Alligator Alley, the Interstate that connects Florida's east and west coasts. One set of plates appeared to be stolen, police sources said.

Eunice Stone told Fox News she was at a Shoney's restaurant with her son Thursday morning when three men at another table "started talking and laughing about 9/11."

"It really scared me, I was really scared," Stone said. "Why were they sitting there laughing about 9/11?"

She said at least one of the men was wearing a Muslim skull cap, or kufi, and the other two were clean shaven with short hair. One had a beard that came to the chest, and two of the men were clean-shaven.

All three were in their mid-20s and spoke English. "They were all well groomed," she said.

"The one with the beard on his face, he held up two thumbs and said, 'Yeah, did you see him smiling at how sad they were? They think they were sad on 9/11, wait until 9/13.' That's exactly what he said.

"The guy in the beard said, 'Do you think we have enough to bring it down?' Then the other guy said, 'If we don't have enough to bring it down, I have contacts that can bring it down.'

"Then they started talking about Miami, they said they had to get on to Miami."

She said she listened closely, and one of the men started talking about "bringing it down" in Miami.

"They were determine to bring 'it' down, whatever 'it' is," she said. She said the three men got up to pay their bill, and she and her son got up to follow them.

As one of the men paid the bill with a credit card, she took a crayon and wrote down the make and model of the car, as well as its Illinois license plate number.

"I just thought something is not right," she said, so she called the Georgia State Patrol on her cell phone.

Police tracked down the cars after one of them ran a toll plaza, Lt. John Bagnardi of Florida Highway Patrol said. He said the three people were uncooperative when they were stopped and refused to allow a search, so authorities brought in the bomb-sniffing dogs.

E.J. Picolo of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said the three people in the vehicles had been identified and were legally in the country, but he would not provide futher information about them. The three were being detained and had not been arrested, he said.

"We've been out here ever since in an attempt to clear those vehicles and fully identify the occupants to determine if any threat exists," Picolo said.

"We're taking it very serious until we eliminate the possible threat or identify the threat."

Police on Friday morning traced the license plates to a home in the Chicago suburb of Hanover Park, and a couple who live there were taken into custody.

The cars, both with Illinois license plates, remained on Interstate 75, also known as Alligator Alley, about 50 yards apart. The Florida Highway Patrol shut down a 20-mile stretch after 1 a.m., when the vehicles were stopped.

Two bomb squad technicians in hoods and protective blast suits removed a suitcase and plastic bags from one car and searched the interior and trunk. A robot was also brought to the scene, though it wasn't immediately clear how it would be used.

The highway was still closed more than 10 hours later, and police were detaining the three men at the site.

Fox News' Orlando Salinas and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
