  Members of a band from Canada wait at the Sinclair station at the intersection of West Broadway and Rockford Road Saturday while authorities decide their fates after seaching their van, right, and equipment truck. The group was later released.  
Six Canadian men and an American woman were detained at an Ardmore gas station Saturday, while authorities searched their vehicles and interviewed them.

Major John Beene, Ardmore Police Department, said officers responded to the West Broadway Street station after receiving a report concerning possible terrorists. Beene said the group told officers they were band members traveling from an engagement in Dallas to a new gig in St. Louis.

However, the group's two vehicles yielded photographs of communications towers and oil tanks as well as anti-government material. In addition, officers discovered evidence that at least some members of the group may have made a recent trip to former Branch Dividian compound in Waco, Texas.

"Criminal checks were run and showed no outstanding warrants. The FBI was called in and did conduct interviews. The group was released because there was not enough evidence to detain them," Beene said.

Marsha Miller can be contacted at marsham@ardmoreite.com by calling (580) 221-6529.
