Suspicious package in East Longmeadow found to be bag of personal belongings

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Industrial Drive in East Longmeadow is back open, after a report of a suspicious package closed it down.

East Longmeadow Fire Chief Paul Morrissette told 22News that the State Police bomb squad determined the package was actually someone’s personal belongings.

Morrissette said that someone dropped a bag off at 79 Industrial Drive Friday morning. Shorty afterwards, someone saw another person come by, and throw something into the bag.

That witness then called 911 to report a suspicious package.

About an hour and a half later, the State Police Bomb Squad had determined the bag was nothing hazardous; giving the police the “all clear.”
