Police stopped two cars on Alligator Alley in Florida- after one car blew through a toll booth.
It all started after a Georgia woman called saying she heard three Middle Eastern men in a restaurant make comments that suggested they might be planning a terrorist attack.
The men apparently said Americans would cry on September 13th.
Police shut down the highway and used dogs and robots to search for explosives-
The dogs reacted to what may be residue from explosives, but so far police haven't found anything linking the men to terrorism.
