SFC Ratliff stopped the CE convoy a safe distance behind them. After a short time the lead convoy started again, completely blocking the road, at a slow speed. The convoys continued this way till RTE Purple where the lead convoy turned off, and the CE convoy continued to PHX. CE BDOC contacted KAIA Security. KAIA reported nothing matching the description came theyre direction. SPC Huff(driver of lead vehicle) did see the vehicles and has been advised to identify similar vehicles in day light hours in order to aid in ongoing investigation. Note: While CE convoy was in V1 circle they had what seemed to be a Roman Candle like flare fired or thrown in their direction. SFC Ratliff indentified the object this way due to the flare going out once it hit water, which a road type flare should not do. The convoy made note and moved on
