This guy said he was cleaning out his shed.  And that there's another one.  I 
noticed the one drive appeared to have tape loaded on it,  too.

I don't have much in the way of details at this point.  There were a whole lot

getting more info from him sometime soon,  particularly when he gets into his 
other shed.
