Event Report: North Carolina nuke apprehends intruder

The McGuire nuclear power plant notified the NRC that it had apprehended an intruder early Sunday morning. According to the Event Report: “At approximately 0335 EST security observed an unauthorized individual climb over the owner controlled area fence. Site security responded and contacted local law enforcement. At 0406 EST, the site declared a Notice of Unusual Event. After turning the individual over to law enforcement and conducting a complete check of the area, the Unusual Event was terminated at 0502 EST.”

Maybe they need a bigger fence….
